Very nice. Shut my wife and she said she wanted me to make her one. Only took me a few minutes.

Thanks for the nice words. Working on a box for my chisels right now. Trying some different techniques. Trying veneer for the first time and doing some inlay banding

Well I couldn't build it but you sure did a great job. I'm really liking the secret slide out...well done!

If you decide to make them and sell any, send me a PM.

That took some time, looks like it was tedious to build. Pretty nice.

Matthew I'm still using my Jet 10" table saw I bought new in 1994. So if I can do it on that then anyone can. Youtube is your friend, of course! That kinda sounds like I'm calling my saw junk which is far from the truth. You just have to learn your equipment. It's been a great saw BUT this one is sitting in the crate in the garage waiting for me to sell the Jet!! After 30 years I deserve an upgrade.
