Needed a new central station in the one car garage/shop
maple top with a few strips of cherry
I don’t think I’m going to finish the cabinet. I like the unfinihsed wood look below.

Looks very good and seems to be very solid. Nice job!
The unfinished look is beautyful to me too.

This is a great looking work bench you’ll be proud of and enjoy for many years. I used Tung Oil on mine and have been very pleased with it the finish.

Nice bench. Looks like plenty of storage. Be nice to see what the drawers look like pulled out.

Looks great. I like the unfinished wood also. Hope fingerprints and smudges do not change its appearance too soon.

The draws are deep. The lower frame and wheels is 5” and the top is 1 1/4 and the total height is 35 1/2.
I did deep draws for things like the plunge frame for the router, the belt sanders and the chargeable drills.
I will add a thin 1/2 tray to one of the draws for little things like pencils and rulers. I left some lip on the left side for a vice. I am tight for space and so I didn’t want to make it any longer.
I will add a small lip across the front for clamping jigs also.

Paul:

Nice bench. You’ve obviously put a lot of work into it.

I like to use Johnson’s paste wax on my bench as I use it for clamping & gluing.
