« Part 17: Storage - Pt. 2 Part 18 of Workbench Build series Part 19: Storage - Pt. 4 »

Assembling drawers now. Have half of them done, enough to fill one of the two boxes:

The drawers are pretty straightforward, utility grade stuff – here is one ready for glue:

They use hardboard bottoms that also serve as slides…...The hardboard extends 2” beyond the drawers to get the full extension effect….....they don’t really have any load carrying ability fully extended, but you can open them fully without dumping the drawer:

Here’s a shot from the back – will close this later:

A couple more shots – those Jatoba handles are all hand fit and they are tight!:

And some of the curly drawer sides:

7 drawers down, 7 to go. Will be adding some tool storage stuff as well…....

More to come…...thanks for looking!

Thanks Lee – Appreciate it!

Randy – I accept the slacker title here…..I wish I had the patience and talent for 14 dovetailed drawers…...Maybe you could post some dovetail projects as an inspiration?? That would be great!

Thanks for the comments!

I think this is fantastic! Really clean, and plenty o storage for anything. I really like the way you did the slides, by making them longer than the drawer so you can open them fully. Ingenious!! Very awesome build. I may borrow that idea when I git round to makin me some storage underneath my bench. That’s on the “ta-do” list. Thnx for showin us how it’s done Jeff

It’s piled high with jobs again and the drawers are still sitting beside it on the floor…..
