I have no proper workbench or tools storage so needed something that could fulfill both of those needs. I am in the middle of a Roubo bench build and found myself constantly just piling up tools on my table saw aka workbench, which was becoming a major pain. So I decided a rolling cart/bench would be pretty sweet, and I thought that if I could incorporate some storage, it would be even better. After seeing the simple design of the drawers online, I decided to give that a try. I also built this to the same height as my table saw so that I could use it as a TS extension.
I used 2×4’s for the frame and 1/2 ply for the drawers, 3/4 ply for the drawer carcase and top, which I then added a piece of 1/4 hardboard to top. As a first to me, I used box joints for the drawers and learned how to make a jig to make those. The feeling I had when the two piece joined perfectly was just absolute joy. I decided to keep the front free of obstructions aka knee-bangers, I used a simple arched cut-out for the pull. I finished it with a good sanding and a little BLO.
Thanks for looking!
