I made another drawer using what ever I could find in the shop. Half inch and 3/4 inch plywwod with 1/2 inch wheels. This is working out nicely. This drawer is being used to store various nails that I hardly ever use. More clutter out of the way.

I have room to build two more drawers – one wide one and another like this one.

More pictures and details are included in my blog.

And now for an update. I made two more drawers to fit under the tool box. So I am finally through making wheeled drawers.

These last two drawers were built with various types of wood including some reclaimed pallet boards for the bottom of the wide drawer. Plywood from a drawer made in 1987 was cut down to make two sides.

Some good things came out of these projects. Free wood and fewer cutoffs in the “short” bin.

Brilliant idea! Love them, the wheels look great and very practical. They add storage and organization to the shop.

Wish I’d seen this sooner!! I was considering removing the wheels from my rollaways to gain a little more space, now I see I can use that dead-air space with your very practical idea. Great project!

Thank you sir. I built a new work bench/table which gave me a little more room so I built another drawer for it! :-)
