I needed more drawers to store tools and projects so I decided to take a wall that I had some mismatched tables on and build a proper set up. What resulted was an 11 feet long workbench cabinet with 17 drawers. It is a crazy amount of storage for my little garage shop and what is most fun is the top drawers are 4 feet each and very shallow to hold pen blanks. That’s way too many pen blanks. Above it I have a 4×8 of peg board so I think I’m done for a while. Thanks for looking.
