I have this HUGE empty space under the right wing of my SawStop, it has been bothering me for quite some time, this HUGE underutilized space is just WRONG in my Dungeon, I had to do something about it.....
I also had my old router table, that is to be RIFed, as it is no longer used and is just in the way. I got a lot of good use out of it, and I'm sorry to see it go, as it served me well, but go it has to.
I thought I'd be real smart (dead give away I was WRONG) and use the old drawers that were in the router table.....
I proceeded to make a cabinet that fit the drawers, kind of backwards I know, but when you start with existing drawers, well you get the idea.
Here is what I came up with............... eventually.........

I did not have the height to put a shallow drawer in the top area, like I wanted to, but I did have the width, so I put a vertical drawer in the middle. I will put some pegs in there to hang sawblades and such.
Here is a poor pic of the cabinet under the saw, fits just right, and takes care of the HUGE waste of space I had (55cm x 76cm x 54cm deep or 21.6" x 30" x 21" deep).
In the end, I spent more time futzing with the old drawers than if I'd just made new ones I will also say that the old drawers are only OK, I know that I can now make a lot better stuff, I guess my skills have improved, mostly thanks to many helpful people here
While I was building, I made a rack under the left side of the saw to hold the fence while it is not in use............
...... when I'm ripping down sheet goods with the Festool rail saw I need to remove the fence, and it is kind of in the way, so another problem solved.
A good day for sure.
