Delta table saw Upgrades

Nice little weekend project to keep the mind busy.
Made bigger wings and storage for my Delta 36-725
Under the left wing I made a little slide out holder for saw blades that only sits about an 1 1/2" below deck.
Oh and I also like to paint everything.
I have a small garage and was building something else to the right of my saw this past weekend.
The extra wing on the right side has already created a nice work space tools and whatnot.

Nice use of the space between the rails. Great blue tops!

I did something similar on my table saw too.

I did see yours posted last week just as I was starting mine.
That looks real good

It sure is convenient having that top tray!

I'll bet you had lots of fun getting the box bolted on so the hinged door sits just right! That was my biggest challenge.😁

Can you post a picture of the slide out blade tray?

I was originally going to build a 24" x 27" box to fit in that spot but I was hesitant to try and get it square and bolted in so I built it a piece at a time.
I put my main piece in place along the main table side and built out from there.
I made a 1/2" spacer on the hinge side to bump it out a bit from the rail a bit.
The only problem I had was not being able to open the door completely vertical without putting stress on that hinge.
The top is 3/4" MDF so i dont want those screws to pull out.
I actually found some chains on mounts at work and used those to limit how far it will open.

I will try to get a picture tonight.
Its really just a 1/4" piece of hard board that slides into two wooden rails with grooves. Real simple just to hold a few blades.

I have the same saw. I used the right side to drop one my router into a peice of MDF . Has plenty of space and makes nice use of the fence. I might have to do something similar to your on the left side.
