The weather in Kentucky was nice today and I got a wild hair to do some cleaning. My cleaning efforts today did not get everything presentable enough for me to finally post shop pics so I will post this as a project… Before it gets dirty again.
I bought a lathe last spring and needed myself a good solid bench top for it to rest on. The need for a new work surface opened up an opportunity to fill a couple other needs as well. At 32” high the new top is a more comfortable height for the Ridgid spindle/ belt sander and 16 more drawers never hurt anyone.
It is hard to tell form the pictures but each row of drawers fronts are made from one board. The quarter sawn board I made the face frames from was an attempt to make the drawers stand out more.
The drawers boxes are 5/8” soft maple, the top is 2” thick laminated doug fir (2×4) and the carcasses are 3/4” home center sanded plywood.
Thanks for looking
