Finally had some time to finish the drawer base for my workbench. Sapele face frame, with oak handles with ebony stain. EVERYTHING used in the building of this was salvaged/saved material from the jobs I’ve worked on.

What a great cabinet with lots of storage …. we all need more storage at our work benches.
I like the very pronounced stiles, it looks good. Now, wouldn’t it be cool to have the grain run continuously down the stiles?? Ok, on the next one.

Agree, but disagree with other posts. Too nice for the workshop, but that’s what holds us to our standards. Having to face something pretty in the shop is a bracing reminder to make something prettier.
I also like that the downward curve of the handles will shed sawdust easier. Nice move.
All hail scrap wood!

It’s a very classy design for a workshop drawer front. Nice work on the chest.

Love the mix of wood and color. For my next chest of drawers and in the workshop. Nice look.
