It occurred to me after I made that last post that I should probably clarify something. The lower half of the base is 27” wide, but the upper half of the base is only about 17” wide. So, the top overhangs that by 8-1/2” on each side. This is why I say it would be easy to add some kind of storage or cabinets under the bench without compromising the ergonomics or the functionality.

As I said in my last posting, the space just under the top was left open to allow access for holdfasts and other accessories. It is also there in case I ever have to access the lifting mechanism. I have considered adding drawers in the open space just under the top. If I did that I would either build them around any holdfasts or I would make sure that I could remove them easily to retain access for holdfasts. There is potential for a bit of storage at each end of the bench, too.
