Drill Press Drawer Set

I used to have a bench top drill press sitting on top of a set of drawers I built. I replaced the drill press with a floor model. Oh, what to do to replace the storage space I lost. Easy, this baby is high enough to roll over the drill press platform. If I have to lower the drill press table, the chest of drawers just rolls out from under for that task. It’s about 33” high, 24” wide, and 18” deep.

Very nice Odie. I’m guessing that this is a new set of drawers and not the old one that had a drill press on top of it.

Great job.

This project look to be a great space saver and an even better organizer. If and when I upgrade to a floor model I will have to keep this project in mind.

So I would assume you have to roll the cabinet out of the way each time you want to adjust the table height? probably not a huge deal, and the amount of storage gained is worth that little bit of effort.

Very nice Odie… I’ve got one of those cheap little metal tool cabinets under mine… so cheap that you open the lid and you can bend it with your fingers. I need to junk it and build one of these… nicely done Sir!

Hey this is one of those “that makes so much sense, why didn’t I think of it myself” type ideas. The space under my drill press table is mostly unused…a great place for a wheeled storage cabinet. Thanks Odie.
