This project was taken from SHOPNOTES Vol 21 Issue 124. I have finally finished the man cave/workshop reno with just a few minor touch ups. Took me a year or more but it was worth it. So now I get to cut stuff up and make stuff. One of the first projects I have completed is this Cabinet for my rotary tools. Until now they have been in the plastic boxes they came in. When I was looking for something to organise my rotary tools. I saw this and it looked fairly easy. It wasn’t difficult, just a lot of using the dado blades. I made a few mistakes but I hid them well and they were minor. Prior to starting, I was worried I would not be able to store 2 rotary tools plus ALL of the attachments. Well this does that with plenty of space. One of the coolest features is the dust collector box with the tool holder. I can have the tool stationary and have 2 hands to hold the wood. I didn’t make the holes exactly as per plans, instead I bought some pegboard and use the holes. The holes in the project are set up so more suction is applied further away from the hose (makes sense). Anyhow, its made of pine, couple a piano hinges and 2 door catches. What this has really enabled me to do is stop whining and thinking too much about having to get the rotary tool, digging through the accessories, dropping bits and throwing a lot of #
!#&^% words out. I use my rotary tool a lot more now, easy to get, easy storage and its all right over my bench. Hope you like! Happy New Year.
