You may have seen this style SCMS stand b4…. the nexus for the plan comes from 2010 issue of FWW. I altered the design in a couple ways, as I thought the Kreg stop system was way overpriced and I wanted to use the base for storage of cut-offs. I also re-sized the box for better plywood utilization. I modeled my design in Solid Works, and you can see the comparison attached.
I built the carcass from a partial sheet of 5/8 CDX I had kicking around. The wings and wing supports were cut on the CNC router at work from scrap material. When we by expensive panel product, we get it shipped sandwiched between damaged scrap from the distributor. They seem to have a lot of this particle board with wood grain melamine on one side and oak veneer on the other.
The partitions were also cut on the CNC from 1/4” Masonite. This slotted style is typical of corrugated (cardboard) partition design, and we use it with plywood for crate partitions every now and again. I put the cubbies at an angle to keep the cut-offs from falling out, and to increase the length that they could hold slightly.
I recycled leveling feet from an old desk for the wing levelers, and I put circle cuts in where I could to make the hinged members lighter.
I made the DC hood as a previous project, but stiffened it with some wood cleats and added a block to clamp a job light on, as well as hooks for a speed square, a hole to keep a pencil handy and a tape measure.
The wing tops are from a Home Depot melamine shelf and the fence is cut melamine scrap. The fence is caped with a 36” leg of Incra T-Track Plus, which only cost $17 and comes with the plastic rule in the slot already.
The fence stop has a sliding hinge block machined From a scrap of UHMW for a nice snug fit in the T-Track, and the fence stop is a scrap of Mahogany I’ve had sitting under my bench for ages. when the knob is tightened down it flexes very little.
The project turned out to be a budget build, and now I can pull the SCMS out and more easily access the panel stock I keep stored up against the wall.
Thanks for looking.
