A self designed workbench with storage and casters. The drawer fronts are pine with the grain continuing from drawer to drawer. I made it the same height as my table saw so it can double as an infeed table to make it easier to rip full size panel stock. The bench now has a home-made leg vise on the left end with a row of dog holes. The top is reclaimed solid table top with formica surface.

Really beautiful attention to detail. I really like the open areas beneath the top for quick storage.
Nice project.

Very nice work bench. I like the set up with drawers and handy open areas. Nice lay out.

Nice bench, and you made this while waiting for the glue to dry on the ‘coffin’ ??

Nice attention to detail like the grain continuation.
