My Douglas Fir Workbench (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/18261) just wasn’t complete without some tool storage space.
The cabinet is 30” W x 19” H x 20” D and is a plywood box with drawers made from ‘select’ lumber from the neighborhood big box store.
This was a pretty low-cost project … the only hardware I had to buy was the wire pulls on the drawers. The drawer slides are 1” x 1/4” grooves in the sides of the drawer boxes. The drawers ride on oak rails attached to the cavity of the case.
The drawer boxes themselves are made with lock rabbit joints and 1/4” hardboard bottoms. I picked up some rubber-ribbed runner material to line the bottom of the drawers … gives the tools some padding, and cuts down on vibration.
