This is a under bench tool cabinet I made also from Fine woodworking plans. It holds my layout tools in the two top drawers, Scale Model supplies in the next two levels and my power tools in the bottom two drawers. 2 separate cabinets made of plywood. They are lined with Pecan hardwood edging and the drawer fronts are Pecan plywood. I also made the drawers using 1/2” ply for sides and bottom and made them with box joints. I stained the drawer fronts Walnut and the rest of the cabinet was poly.

Great set of drawers Bret. You’ve got enough whells in there for a few more trucks

Nice organization for your tools. I keep kicking around the idea of under bench storage or wall cabinet. These came out great. Thanks for the post. Welcome to LumberJocks.

excellent work. Very similar to my bench and I’ve enjoyed it for many years now.

That is a great project! Good way to get practice in making drawers for sure!

You did a great job on that thing, and I bet it will be all kinds of useful for decades to come…

Very very nice. I added storage to the bottom of my bench and dont think I could live without it.
Great Job.
