Just a place to stash all the extra chisels in the shop. Top is also a shelf to stash other tools on.
Frame and panel, using just Pine, and plywood. Top drawer was a “Curb Find” that I recycled. Bottom drawer needed “Carved” to match the old drawer. Top is held in place by cleats, in case I want to expand the case, at a later date.

The finish is a single coat (for now) of the Infamous Witch’s Brew. A test fit with tools?

Not too bad of a project…..

Should help make the bench more stable if nothing else. Looks pretty good!

Very nice. I always believed if it’s not worth organizing and making a place for, then it’s not worth keeping. Great job !
