When you have a basement shop as I do, it is always great when you can fill three needs at once. This project, built from plans in one of the woodworking magazines, provides plenty of individual bins to separate the myriad types of screws, nuts, bolts and other miscellaneous hardware that we collect in the course of different projects and home repairs. Two shelf cases are stacked and each case can hold either 6 single height drawers or 3 double height. My project has 6 single height drawers (21 bins each) above, 4 single and 1 double height drawer on the bottom. The drawer pulls were routed with an inset slot for labels.
One modification to the plans I made was to install the top with 4 screw levelers in the corners and using 1/4” HDPE to cover the top. This, with the lockable casters used on the bottom, allows the shelf unit to double as a table saw infeed or outfeed table. The HDPE provides a reduced friction surfact that wood slides on pretty well.
The third use is that which is always in short supply – bench space!
