Default Another set of Drawers

after I got through making the drawers for my MLCS router table I was looking at my junked up Jessem table and decided to do the same for it.

Put the drawers in and found that the top one was too shallow for my router bits so i knocked the top off and extended it up 1 1/2"

Then I found the router bits were still too long to close the drawer so I drilled holes in the bottom to let the shanks extend down thru, but only half the bits fit so just put them in the second drawer.

LMAO. If you notice in the first picture of the box there is a cut-out filled in on the bottom. Well that started out as the top. When I tried to slide the box in over the front angle it hung up on the router lift. So I cut a hole for that and the box went in and dropped down 2" and I lost 2 " of room inside. So I took the front angle off turned it over to be upside down and then I could just slide the box into the stand. I still didn't have room in the top drawer and since now I had some room at the top, I figured if I raised the top ,it would allow the bits room , but it didn't.

Herb, the finished item should be placed in the lounge/living room.It is much to pretty to reside in your shop. James jj777746
