Rockler's Steel Shop Stand | Sharpening Station & Drill Press Station
posted on April 21, 2014 by Rockler

One way to maximize space in a smaller shop is to have everything on wheels. These configurations of Shop Stands provide the right space, stability and mobility for your sharpening wheel and benchtop drill press. And if you want more storage, check out our Dust-Free Shop Trays. They’re sized and drilled to easily install on 18" and 24" stands.

 

Sharpening Station: Enclosed Cabinet + Drawers

Shop Stand Sharpening System

This 18"W x 18"W x 28"H Shop Stand on Locking Casters is the perfect home for your Tormek or Work Sharp sharpener. You supply the top, pulls and plywood for enclosing the cabinet and building the drawers. You’ll also need to install blocking at the sides for the drawers. (16" drawer slides recommended.) Legs and stretchers are predrilled, making it easy to add accessories such as the Dust-Free Shop Trays, for example. And with FastCap's layered Kaizen Tool Storage Foam, you can cut foam blocks with recesses to fit your tools perfectly.

Drill Press Table: Open Storage + Single Drawer

While this configuration built with one 24"W x 24"L x 28"H Shop Stand on Locking Casters specifies only one drawer, you certainly could add more to accommodate your entire arsenal of bits, cutters and other drilling accessories. You supply the top, pulls and plywood for enclosing the cabinet and building the drawer(s). You’ll also need to install blocking at the sides for any drawers. (16" drawer slides recommended.) If you stick with one drawer, add a shelf on the bottom stretchers for open storage. The legs and stretchers are predrilled for easy mounting.
