Prior to building this all I had was open shelves that were overcrowded and always dusty. I was able to put all of the stuff that was previously on the open shelves into the drawers and I still have 1 unused drawer!
The base is from Norm’s workshop hutch project. I decided not to build the upper “hutch”. Instead I used the left over plywood to build 2 wall cabinets. The wall cabinets are hanging on 2 french cleats that I attached to some blocking between the studs. I also wired for 2 outlets to use at the bench. Let me say that Norm doesn’t fool around, these drawers are giant and really deep, 32” wide on 28” full extension slides. The top has a removable hardboard top. Another added benefit is that it’s provided another horizontal surface to assemble parts, and store some tools.
At some point I’ll probably add 2 open shelves (more leftover plywood) between the wall cabinets and add either T-11 or drywall to the wall.
