VAC SYS Workstation
« on: January 26, 2021, 01:13 PM »
Now I have no excuse not to use my SYS VAC.
Thank you to those that inspired me to build my own SYS VAC cart.

From the beautiful look, I assume this cabinet is going in your formal dining room?   [smile]  Seriously, very nice looking project.

Very nice looks like furniture.

Does it expand to be able to use it on wider longer pieces?

Thank you everyone. The wood is walnut. It is not expandable.
I do admit it is overkill for a shop. Last fall I had to retire from the remodeling work that I had been doing for the past 45+ years. Since I am now spending a lot of time in the shop & have lots of walnut & cherry lumber. I also had to organize my tools better. I had several craftsman tool cabinets with drawers filled with tools. I decided to combine the need to organize & my supply of lumber & build shop furniture. In the process I found lots of tool that I forgot I had because I could not find them.
Here is some more shop furniture.

Wow Chris, again nice work.
Thanks for the shot in the arm to get more motivated on getting more organized.
I agree on if your need to build shop furniture, build it so you can enjoy it.

Where do you find the label holders? Kind of reminds me of the (old) card catalogs in a library.
