I needed more storage space for my tools and a better organization.
There was room left under the old desk.
So I made this 10 drawer “cabinet”.

The drawer pulls are mahogany. They are positioned in a “funky” order. Just for fun and recognize.

The shallow drawers are made from birch plywood and measure about 21 1/2” deep.
They glide on waxed hardwood runners.

I have still some room left.

Thanks for watching.

Bas that is a really sweet setup. One can never have enough storage in a shop.

Neat solution. All you have to do now is to remember what’s in each drawer!!

Very nice! I was pleased you didn’t line up the handles on purpose. At first I thought you might be a little dizzy! lol
