Here I have my flip top tool station. Everything came out great except the slots in the flop top for the eye’d bolts. I had to get them in and it looks pretty rough but hey it is shop furniture.
There is a 1 3/8” dowel going through the flip top, it rests in corresponding slots in the sides. The dowel has a small 3/4” dado 1/2” from the end. This keep the top centered and the sides from getting pushed apart and the top falling through.
I decided to put metal brackets on the dado’ed bottom. This is due to the lack of top support (top must rotate).
I have put dowels in the bottom and the side to store the spindle sander parts and spools. As the top is flipped, obviously everything that isn’t attached falls. I decided to put in on the bottom and not on the exterior sides to keep the footprint small
