Having recently sold my router table due to space constraints at ground level I was left with the problem of storing my router bits safely.
The above wall cabinet is a result of a free plan from WOOD magazine. The only alteration to the original design is the fact I have used two doors instead of one as per the plan. This was initially because the sheet of plexi glass I had was not wide enough to span the single door frame in the plan, however the two doors have worked out better for me in my small shop space.
The cabinet carcass is made from scrap 3/4” birch ply left over from our recent kitchen remodel, the door frames and back board are salvaged from the packing crate my thickness planer arrived in. Even the hardware was found in the hardware bin.
It is the first time I have used a drawer lock bit to create the drawer joints, kind of fiddly to set up and I had to review the “how to” section of the MLCS webpage (thanks MLCS) to see how it was accomplished but I think the results were worthh the effort. I used 1/2” birch ply for the drawer boxes.
Hope you like it.
