I finally after years of thinking about it, added some drawers/storage under my workbench.

holy cow, that is one fine workbench. What kind of wood are those drawer fronts?

If you make a work bench that looks that nice, then you should be allowed to put it in the Living room and work in there anytime you want. Just sayin…

It was well worth the time. Looks great and now you have a lot of storage. I know what you mean, sometimes you have to give it just a little thought before starting. Well done.

Good looking bench, I’m curious how you’re going to access your benchdogs.

It’s absolutely beautiful and a wonderfully useful and practical design.

Thanks everyone. The drawers are made of Padauk. I used poplar for the inside due to cost and being lighter then most other hardwoods. I have yet to finish the front face. I may leave it without a finish until my next project. The bench dogs still work, I just have to make them a little shorter, but the bench is plenty thick enough for shorter bench dogs. I copied a design for the pulls from a recent issue of “Fine Woodworking”. I got tired of paying so much for nice pulls elsewhere, so I made my own. The bench has seen quite a few scratches and gouges. I’m not as careful as I should be, but I think a beaten up bench adds character. I gave the bench top a fresh coat of BLO, so it looks nicer then usual.
