This is for crafts, sewing, stained glass, what have you. The left side is table height to sit down and work, the right is counter height to stand and work. It has 6 drawers for supplies. It’s the first time I made drawers. I used PH’s and glue. I thought about dovetails and drawer joints, but it seemed too much work for something that won’t show. The legs, frame, drawer faces are from white pine, the top and cabinet is from shop grade maple.
Thanks for looking,
Vicki

Vicki;

A great workstation. Nice job on the design and build. Is it all modular where each drawer section can be moved individually.

Hey Karson,
Thank you. Yes it is 2 seperate 3 draw cabinets. I placed them next to each other and ran a screw from one to the other to keep them real close. The top comes off. That frame like part that is between the cabinets and the table top has a dado in it and when it’s placed on the cabinets, it also holds them close together. There’s one screw run through the top of a cabinet into it to keep it from wobbling. This way if the 2 different heights are no longer needed I can put a new continuous top from one cabinet to the other and have a desk.
