« Part 9: Overall impressions of my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench Part 10 of Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) series Part 11: Shop labels »

I decided to make a pull-out drawer for the ~7” gap between cabinets. I toyed with different uses and came up with clamp storage. This freed up two drawers for other uses. I need to find a decent way to make replaceable labels for the drawers.

Thanks GL, but I wanted to make something out of scrap rather than spend any money on it. I’ve come up with this idea which could work.

Simply two strips of wood spaced above and below to hold a business card. The inner edges could be angled to hold the card in. The space block shown would help to get consistent spacing when gluing the strips in place. Temporary staples could be used to hold the strips until the glue sets up. I could even use the cards that come on a sheet for a home printer to print the labels. Woo-hoo!

Garry,

Sounds like a great idea, I have some of the labels you refered to and they can be printed in many font sizes and styles and in bold, which would work real well.

I misunderstood what you were asking for. I get a Rockler and a Woodcraft catalog several times a year and although, on some items, they are a little higher than some other on-line sources, I’m often in too big a hurry to surf the web for just a couple small items.

...btw, that cart is coming together quite nicely.

Best Regards. – Len
