Many have heard me lament machine stands that offer no storage. This tale is one of those with a twist. Not only does the tool come with a stand that only offers a shelf for storage but, I had to get rid of an old faithful rolling, drawered, work table to make the new sander fit in the shop. The contents of that old faithful standby (pun intended) have been in my way for the last several weeks contained in some plastic storage containers.
The Supermax 19-38 drum sander is a dream to use but, it takes up a fair sized footprint.
My plan is for something sort of like this. Please excuse the representative shapes for the sander; they suited my needs.
Building this serves two purposes; it gets me a mobile stand with storage AND gets this darn plywood out from behind my bench .
Nothing fancy here. Just standard rabbet and dado panel construction.
I will see if I can dig up enough scrap for some fancy drawer fronts again like the tablesaw wing drawer unit. I have the feeling the scraps may be pecan this time around .
