I added a drawer to my work bench.

It’s a good place for my chisles, bench dogs, holdfast, and mesuring tools. I posted it as a project here.
It’s not really fancy, but I don’t really have a lot of time or money right now, so it functions and I’m happy with how it turned out.

I turned the pulls on my lathe, and it’s just made out of scrap plywood and pine. I did need to chisle out some of the 2×4 so the case would fit in. And chisling upside down is kinda a pain.

These were my first go at dovetails. they are a little sloppy, and I ran the groove for the bottom drawer right on the edge of a tail, which lead to most of them chipping off.

It will have to do for now. lets find more places to put stuff.
