this little gem of a idea came around when a friend jokingly said bet you cant put draws in it….thats it…the gauntlet has been thrown down….we just needed a little stud wall to create more surface area to store items of tools…and now the challenge is on…with in 6 hours the job was done….mind filling with ideas left right and center…some good most bad….then it hit me….two pieces of 12mm ply at 600×2440 laid on top and marked out ….drilled and counter sunk read for the 3×2 studs…more 12mm ply used for the draws…pva and a health amount of pins from my trusty nail gun…falsefronts added and chisel reack bevelled and fitted helped finish it of …i had moved the stud in from the back and base by the thickness of a stud thus giving me a housing….my friend fitted a 3×2 stud on to the wall and floor so all that was needed was to slot the wall into place and fix…good fun done in good time…even my joinery class i was teaching at the time commented on it…well smug..

But what can you practically put in the opensided drawers without the contents spilling all over the floor every time you open them?

-- I'm looking forward to regretting this.

we are currently hanging spokshaves and fitting shelves to hold block planes…also fitting slotted battens for rules and timbers for drill bits of different sizes

That is a great idea. First time I saw something like that…I may have to steal your idea some day.

It’s very creative and a very efficient use of space.

I do like the idea; but, when you put stuff in the drawers.and you open the drawer. doesn’t everything fall out?
