    Tablesaw Under Wing Drawer Unit

    I can only blame myself for getting distracted between doing a client piece and resuming the kitchen hutch I am making for myself. I got it in my head that I needed some more storage under the tablesaw right wing area. This will be a simple frameless carcass with full extension drawers. Even though I have several methods of elevating work, I found myself staring to assemble this thing on my workbench and on the ground(???).

    My larger sled makes cutting larger panels truly square a quickly do-able thing.

    I have found that on fixtures like this I have no need of a removable back. I do want the back off when I install the glides so, I tape it in place to help keep the carcass square until I am done with that phase.

    I finally figured out that I don't have to hunch over this thing on the floor anymore . . .
    The torsion beams will work fine as an assembly surface for the rest of this job.

    I'm on call for work this week and I keep getting interrupted . . .

    I cut a bottom panel and drill access holes to reach the lever adjustments. I put this in with glue and pocket holes.

    Definitely want to see this. It has to be better than the trash can I have stored under mine.

    Glenn there are times when i wonder if you have mental telepathy on the go with a bunch of us. You seem to post the most appropriate projects at somehow just the right time. Its as if you are a mind reader and know just what is needed when.

    I wrestle with this space and the desire to fix it all the time. Mostly due to space limitations i found i have to keep my saw mobile. Then i always say so what do i do with the cabinet if its not part of the mix when i want to move it.

    But in reality the answer really is for me to find a place that can work for the TS set it down and then if needs be move the other things out the way when needed which is not that often and given i am making everything else mobile , well it certainly would help.

    The other thing is you come up with great easy no excuse get er done quick instant gratification projects.

    Can you do something about the weather now please....

    Thanks Glenn for posting.
    cheers

    It sure was. I went in for a quick bite and the next thing I knew I was down at dad's house!?! We built a rack to hold his tablesaw fence, built a sandpaper faced sac-fence (and found a home) for his miter gauge, relocated his blade rack and made cleats to hold two 60+ pound slabs of steel to the sides of his lathe stand . . . . now where was I . . . .

    Oh yeah, cutting drawer parts . . . .

    OK, now for a boat load of pocket holes. I have used pocket hole joinery for shop drawers at dad's and they have been in service for years without failure. For this "basic function" shop cabinet I will abandon my preferred drawer-lock joint and give the pocket holes a try.

    Thanks Bart. Actually, thanks twice since your cabinet is one of the ones I threw in the mix while I was percolating on mine ;-)
