    ShopSmith storage cabinet from salvage and scraps

    Finally, after a number of years, I had some shop time last week and completed my Shopsmith Storage cabinet. Now I don't need to dig through cardboard boxes, plastic bins, and other tool cabinets to find all the little pieces and parts to make my Shopsmith function

    It's a pair of basic plywood european cabinets with painted MDF slab drawer fronts, all from scrap. The top is a piece of butcher block counter salvaged from a remodel. It's sitting on the base I used to use to hold the box scraper from my old tractor. The handles are are from a surplus seconds shop and were 15 cents each. The holes in the handles are off center by 1/4". The only parts I bought were the 6 Blum Blu motion drawer slides.

      You guys know I am all into reusing lumber. Love this build, and love the fact that you repurposed previously used materials.
