Soon after the completion of my workbench, it was clear that I needed some accessible storage because the top was constantly covered with clutter. I made this set of drawers over the past couple of days to address the issue.
The case is made from 3/4” birch plywood and utilizes 100lb Shop Fox drawer slides. The drawers use 3/4” plywood sides with vertical sliding dovetails into a 1/2” plywood front. They have a 1/4” plywood bottom which is fitted into a dado around the perimeter. Finally, they are faced with 1/2” plywood and some shop-made walnut handles. Finished with wipe on poly.
I’m not sure if this is an “accepted” method for drawer construction, but I’m very pleased by the relative ease of construction and their solid feel.
Thanks for looking!
