Wednesday Woodworking – Another Drawer

I had a day in the shop this weekend.  The drawer in the table saw stand worked so well that I put a second one in.  Then I added a door to keep the sawdust out.  It’s not a precision job as the original stand was a bit of a slap together job, but it works.

Here’s the drawers:

Two drawers for the price of one.

And a nice door:

Nobody wants to be a square.

All the parts on this stand are recycled from things I’ve torn apart.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

  1. What you call slap together jobs are really handy too, when they work. What you have here is not meant to have sex appeal but to be functional, and that’s just what it does. If you allow me to quote you on slap together jobs, I will do so in the future, as I have a few of those to so every so often. 😀

    I love to see people reuse things and materials. It is how we humans should live our life.


  5. You could become a sculptor, nailing some interesting shapes of scrap wood together for a modern work of art!

    Yes, plywood is pretty expensive in the UK as well.


  7. Nice job, Andrew. I like your use of repurposed wood. Sound for the environment and it adds a narrative element to the finished product.


  8. Nice. 🙂 My husband has a large workbench in the barn, and he put shelves underneath to store tools he doesn’t use often but they kept getting dusty. I had some very heavy upholstery material that didn’t have a destination in mind so we cut it in sections and he stapled it at the top. It covers the shelves like your door and keeps the dust out. 🙂


  9. Smart in design, smart in economy. Good job!


  10. You are amazing. A little paint, varnish, it would become a valued piece of garage furniture.
