Thought I would post this over here in the "SHOPS" section where I could "tag" it if someone else was looking for ideas. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have been working on a Table Saw Storage unit for under the extension table and an outfeed table. I have combined the two so I can store the outfeed table out of the way when not needed. I can also use this as an assembly table. I used 2 motorcycle lifts to raise the cabinet off of the base to level it with the table saw. Since my floor is somewhat uneven, I went with 2 lifts so I could adjust for a slight slope (if needed) and for more stability. Here is the base with the two lifts and casters attached (not many PIP photos) Under the extension table in "storage" Showing 3 of the 6 drawers (sorry it is blurry) Showing the blade storage in the back In position as the outfeed table View of the lifts under the cabinet The entire cabinet is made out of MDF (scraps I had) and the base is from a failed project a few years ago. Projects like this help me use up some of the scraps that I have accumulating around the shop. Thanks for looking
As I have mentioned, I recently got a new router lift complete with table stand and fence. As with most of us, storage space is premium so I wanted to build storage under the table, between the legs. So, I took two plans that I like and have combined them to get what I want and to fit in the space that I have. It is a work in progress but here is my progress so far: Router Table Assembled, Router Mounted in Lift and whole unit set on a mobile base (note: I lowered the front lower brace to accommodate the storage cabinet) Base made to for the cabinet to set on (brings cabinet bottom up to top of front brace) Some of the parts cut out - ready to dados and rabberts Dry Fit Cabinet - I wanted to get exact dimensions for the upper drawers that will set on each side of the lift. Thank you for looking.
Here is the start of a shop storage project. I got the idea from a Woodsmith plan that had two stackable cabinets on them, then one day I say this plan on another site where instead of two cabinets, one cabinet with "L" sides. So, like in my normal fashion, neither plan works for what I wanted and where I wanted it, so I had to modify the dimensions and somewhat combine the 2 plans. Here are a couple of pictures showing the start: This one is showing the layout of the two sides - notice my "plans" on the paper next to the tape measure. Here are the two sides cut out. Next step - dados for the top, bottom, middle and fixed shelves (forgot to get those pictures last night) The upper part of the cabinet will be for router bit storage. The lower part will be for routers and misc. related items. Dimensions are 21" wide x 16" deep (bottom)/8" deep top) x 75" tall. Thank you for looking,
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
