I needed more storage in my bench, I had only one shelf in this section behind the door. I made three drawers that are pretty hefty. They are all made from 3/4” plywood and the drawer glides are full extension and rated for 100 lbs. As you can see they are full!!

Thanks for looking and as always all comments are welcome!

seems we never have enough storage
drawers are my preferred ones too
shelves just hide things
after the sawdust coats everything
in a neutral color
drawers can be dedicated
shelves are just ‘catch-all’s’

Great use of the space Chuck. Looks like you have it all nice and organized and by the looks of the pic you need the 100 lb rated slides. Well done !!!

Nice addition to your bench, Chuck. I like storage behind doors. Drawers keep things neater and allow you to dedicate spaces for particular items. Not to mention keeping dust out.

I love what you did there man! Such a brilliant idea. An additional organizer in the shop. Good job.
