« Part 5: Done, but not Finished Part 6 of My Version of the $175 Workbench series Part 7: The End of the Ending »

After putting three coats of Arm-R-Seal on the top, I started building a simple plywood cabinet to fit into the base of the bench. The cabinet is made from 3/4” plywood with the exception of the doors and the top, which are 1/2” plywood.

I plan to build an angled hand plane rack for the right side of the cabinet, to hold my #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, and maybe my #8 plane – I still haven’t conclusively determined whether or not the #8 will actually fit under there. The left side of the cabinet will hold my sharpening supplies and a few miscellaneous tools and supplies to be determined.
