Another shop project, but for some reason I really enjoying building them and seeing the shop evolve over time, don’t tell my wife as her list is getting longer by the minute!! Ha!

I have a running theme in my shop, I like using 1/2” Baltic Birch ply with 1/4” walnut edge banding. So far I’ve finished my Jet Drum sander cabinet and Flip Top cart in this theme.

I recently got the ETS 125 sander by Festool, worth every penny in my opinion, and there abrasives last forever. It sanded so well, I had to build 2 boxes for this cabinet b/c the first one slipped out of my hands trying to move it off my MFT3, notice the top cabinet dividers has walnut edging on them, I wouldn’t normally do that, but since my 1st cabinet broke i figured I’d put the labor making the edge banding to use.

After completing this build, I notice a big difference in how clean my horizontal surfaces were around my shop. Even thought it’s not a huge TS cabinet, it holds enough to make a difference visually in my shop.

More shop furniture coming up this season! I’ve set a goal this season to complete a TS cabinet, (CHECK!) Assembly table, Floor and Wall shop Cabinets, and a Ultimate Miter Station by the end of May!!! Wish me luck!

Check out my newest Shop Update.

Here’s my other shop furniture in this theme.

Hope you enjoy!

I like your blade storage, have a few ideas bouncing around in my head on how to do something similar in the base cabinet i built for my craftsman contractor saw. its nice to have more storage for sure.

This is a great idea and a storage you’ll appreciate the rest of your wood working career! Why do I say that? Because I opted to put a router and a shelf under my table saw extension table, and every shop session has me wishing I had drawers under the extension so that extension didn’t accumulate miscellaneous stuff I use incidental to my table saw.

Lance, how did you cut the angled dados that retain your saw blade holders. Did you just tilt the miter gage?
