Built this tool chest to make more room for the machines I have been making. Plus the old base cabinets (from my old kitchen) took up 8 feet of space. I never used the counter top on top of them other than setting stuff on. So I got rid of them after building this. Got the plans from one of those wood magazines but can’t remember which one.

slides for the top 6 drawers are glued in oak sliders. Bottom drawers use metal slides I had lying around from another project I took apart.

It is 48” x 36” x 22”.

I put the recharging station above the cordless drills. Just plug it in and everything starts to charge.

American Woodworker, maybe four or five years ago? A simple but adaptable plan. I made one and it changed my organization dramatically for the better. Looks good, btw.
