OK – all the drawers are built, the boxes are sanded (yuke!)...........

Had a chunk of 1/4” walnut ply just big enough to build 2 backs:

In place:

I saw this post from Triumph1 and the Kaizen Foam..this stuff is really addictive…...just one drawer done so far….....I love geeky stuff like this….

More stuff waiting to be cut…...

Winding down…..thanks for looking….

One hell of a job!!! If you keep this up, people are going to think you know what you are doing. I really do like the drawer organizing. A place for everything & everything in it’s place!!!

Oh man fitted drawer liners. Thats cool. I have to toss pencils and erasers in mine to stop stuff from floating around. Jeff those are looking very professional. That drawer of shaves looks good.
What finish are you going to apply?

Hey Randy – Thanks, and good point on people thinking you know what you’re doing…..

Here is the actual drawer picture:

Last thing I need is people calling for drawer organizing!

Dave – I’m thinking a couple coats of poly…..........thanks man.

You have gone over the top on this. Really looks good, and should make life/organization a lot easier.

Thanks Shane…. appreciate it!

Marty – They are thin pieces stacked together and the plys are glued together. The idea is you can peel whatever layer away that you want…..takes a bit of practice, but pretty straightforward…...lots of applications. There are some how to videos here.

For these drawers, the cost comes out around $2.50/drawer for the foam…......

Ohhh Jeff. So inspiring. I think I should stop the pen spree, and start organizing a bit my place.

Sean – looking forward to your bench build! Thanks!

Fernando – don’t quit on the pens – you started out with a bang! Besides, when you start building shop furniture, it’s kind of addicting and there is no end to it!
