Just built some drawers for the table saw. What do you think?

Just as a note… Pay no attention to the dimensions on the drawers, they are wrong. When I drew it I forgot to add the half inch clearance for the drawer slides on each side of the drawers.

Very useful. They look like they came with the saw.

Hozer, this looks very nice. Very clean. It is nice when you find stuff back, everything in its place…

If I didn’t know better, I’d say it was built with Photoshop. The way the saw table just seemlessly attaches to the drawers – how did you do that by the way? Sure wish that fence wasn’t in the way like it is…

Ha! No Photoshop here. I did design it in Sketchup, though I changed a lot of the dimensions as I went… I’ll post that Pic to try and give you a better idea of how it’s put together. Its just a box that’s screwed to the underside of my extension table… and my extension table is bolted to my fence arms.

See, I shoulda realized by now how talented the people at LJs are but sometimes I just can’t believe it. No offense I hope and apologies to you if there was. Looking forward to the additional pics.

No offense taken Jim, I had to laugh cause I only wish I was that good at Photoshop! I posted the plan at the top of the page with the thumbnail photo. It was my first time using Sketchup so sorry if its still confusing.

This is great! Does it come in Delta Grey? JK. I really like the way that you painted it out with the PM gold.
