Trays make for handy storage

Next, the trays--simple setups, multiple parts
1 Cut the tray fronts and backs (J) and the sides (K) to size. Install a 1/2" dado blade on your tablesaw; then reinstall the wood auxiliary fence you used earlier to cut the rabbets on the plywood panels. Again, slide the fence until the wood face butts against the dado blade. Adjust the blade height to 3/8", and guiding your stock with the miter gauge, cut the rabbets at the ends of each tray front and back.
2 Without changing the blade or fence setup, cut rabbets along the lower inside edges of all the tray fronts, backs, and sides by guiding the edge of each piece against the wood auxiliary fence.
3 Drill a centered 1" hole in each tray front. These are finger-pulls, so for comfort rout a 1/8" round-over around the rim of the hole, on both faces.
4 Glue and clamp the tray assemblies together, checking for equal diagonal measurements to make sure each tray is square. Then drill countersunk holes for screws at each corner as shown in the Tray drawing.
5 Cut the 1/2" birch plywood to size for the tray bottoms (L). Place one tray assembly upside down on your workbench, and glue the tray bottom into the rabbets. Drill countersunk holes around the edges of the panel; then fasten it with screws.
6 When all the trays are assembled, rout a 1/8" round-over along all the exposed edges.
7 Install the remaining drawer slide hardware. Allow a 3/4" backset from the face of the tray front, so it will end up flush with the face frame. Center the slide on the side of the tray as shown in the Tray drawing, above.

Lot of whining about "hard to download" plans! All I had to do was open the plan to look at it, and then use the PDF viewer's option to save a copy. C'mon people... If you don't know how to use your PC, Mac, etc. don't blame it on the web site!

I agree with MANY here in that this website is almost NOT worth coming here. I keep having to sign in for different plans when I am getting them. That is BULL$HIT in itself! HIRE a COMPETENT web developer or loose many subscribers!

the struggle to use this site is unnecessary... hire a decent web designer... example, i didn't find out that i was limited to 500 characters until AFTER submitting to the dang captcha...

I thought most cabinet saws had the crank for angling the blade on the right side. Must have to reduce the width 6" - 8" to leave room to crank.

As a convenience to allow you to view this free woodworking plan before downloading it, we offer a page-by-page review. If you like the plan, you'll find a Free Downloadable Plan link on the last page of the plan. The downloadable plan will have larger, easier to view illustrations than the online preview. Thanks for viewing, and enjoy the build! Marlen @ WOOD

Thanks for the direction to the plans. Never would have looked there! I'm more of a "see something and push print" person. Nice plan once I got to it!

Great Pan that can not only be used under table saw but there are many other places to use something like this. Need it taller, wider? This is a good place to start in learning to increase the sizes of the parts. Must say good job staff. All I had to do was do a little reading to figure out how to download the plan.

Enlarge problem ? When you scroll over the pic to enlarge it - look at the lower left corner of the screen. You will see an entry like "javascript:void (0) I don't have a problem with any other stuff with java or javascript in any other browser - have no idea why this error. All my stuff is up to date. Why some folks have no problem and others like me do is a mystery. Having a problem submitting now as well ???

Thanks, as usual Wood magazine is helping the woodworking community by giving us this plan for a great accessory for our shops.

Response to Havok Onslaught - The project provides the flexibility of adjustable drawer height, hence the doors. Filling the frontal space with drawer fronts is viable but at the sacrifice of designed flexibility.

It's a great idea for storage, but I would not want the doors on the front. I would just make the drawer fronts larger to cover the front and save time from opening doors and then pulling out drawers.

I have downloaded many plans from Wood Magazine in .pdf format and never had a problem with them. Running Ubuntu on a very old computer.

This is such a great idea. I have recently aquired a cast-iron table converted to a router table. Now I have an idea on how to supprt it. Just need to get extension rails for the Shop Fox mobile base. This was a simple download and a great plan.

I would join the face frame together with a Kreg jig first and then glue and clamp it to the carcass. This gives the cabinet a more finished look instead of a shop cabinet
