I actually have a decent amount of storage space in my shop. But it’s never enough. I decided to use up more scrap material to make a second workbench cabinet. This helps not only with giving me more room to store things but it also gives my workbench a bit more heft to keep it from moving when I’m working on it.
The cabinet itself is put together using pocket screws. The drawers were made with my Akeda jig. At the time I started this project I didn’t have my Vacuum Veneer Press so I used contact cement to veneer 1/8” walnut to mdf.
The one thing I wanted to point out….In the other cabinet I used all full extension drawer slides which were really easy to adjust to get everything even. In this cabinet I used Blum Drawer slides and they were an incredible PITA to get even. I had them so it made sense to use them but if I can help it, I won’t use them again.
