Drill Press Cabinet Dover NH

An important feature of this cabinet is that the drawers haveextra-long 3/4-extension slides to provide full-extension (see Sources,below). I sized my cabinet to fit my Delta 17-in. drill press, model17-900 and made it all from birch plywood.

Drill Press Cabinet

Drill Press Cabinet

 

In my cramped little shop, every square foot counts. With that inmind, I designed this cabinet to fit in the wasted space under thetable of my floor-model drill press. The top drawer holds (vertically)all the twist bits and brad-point bits a person could ever accumulate,and the lower drawers hold sanding drums, spade bits (horizontally),plug cutters and all the rest of the drill press paraphernalia. If youever need to drill into something 4-ft. thick, the cabinet slides outeasily.

An important feature of this cabinet is that the drawers haveextra-long 3/4-extension slides to provide full-extension (see Sources,below). I sized my cabinet to fit my Delta 17-in. drill press, model17-900 and made it all from birch plywood.

To build the cabinet, cut all the parts, including the cutout in thetop. Then screw and glue the inner braces and the back (Parts A and B).Screw on the sides (C), then attach the drawer slides (see Hardware,below) and the top. Nail and glue together the drawer boxes (E and F),then nail on the bottoms (G) to square them up. Attach the slides andinstall the drawers in the cabinet. Using double-faced tape, attach thedrawer fronts (H) so there is a uniform gap all around. Screw on thedrawer fronts and attach the drawer pulls (see Sources). Build and fitthe Bit rack (J). Attach the toe kick (K) and bingo, you've got storagespace.
