Nice cabinet! I’ve been thinking about making something like that for my shop.

You said you want to modify it. What are you not happy with and what changes would you make?

i need to make the disc opening a 1/2” wider, and maybe an extra shelf across the top for the bulk boxes of sanding belts. of course the whole thing would now have to be made of something much nicer than grey melamine, maybe some cherry ply with natural maple edging and a walnut inlay of a sander on the doors…....

You should consider expanding the size of the counter and making it a downdraft table for small and medium sized stuff. It would be very handy as part of your otherwise very nice system!

I like your idea, and Stumpy’s. That would make for a really efficient setup.
