The base cabinets on the left side – the two doors and 10 small drawers – are from a bench that my Grandfather built around 1945. You can see that original bench in the third picture. I inherited the bench when my Dad retired his shop a few years ago. I’m short on floor space, but really wanted to keep the bench. My solution was to mount the upper unit to the wall (which you can see on my shop page) and use the base in this cabinet. This gives me the option of reassembling the original bench configuration if I move into a larger shop or to pass it further down the generations.
Top is veneered ash and walnut. “Old” base cabinets are a mix of white and red oak; new base is red oak. Finished with Danish oil.
