Yesterday I took a good look at my bench-top and noticed how cluttered it gets when working on a few projects at a time. I don’t always put things away if I will be using them later on that day or the next. After a few measurements I figured I could squeeze in a drawer under the top and the cabinets below. This way I could throw all the smaller things in the drawer and have it readily accessible when I need it again without having to put it all away. After finishing the drawer I looked around to see what lumber I had to use as the front. Was lucky enough to find a couple resawn pieces left from a log and figured it would give it a good look. Didn’t really want to waste some of the nice boards I had so it worked out great. After finishing it last night I decided to add one more. Off to H.D. for another drawer slide. They make quick storage for things that I constantly use and will help keep the working surface open.
They are 14’’ w x 18’‘d x 3’‘h. I gave the bark a couple coats of lacquer and the bark really became secure.
Thanks for looking.
