Hey guys,

I am about to move and need to downsize/consolidate my tool storage into a few rolling cabinets. I’ve currently got a lot of handtools hanging on the wall, but that won’t be an option in my new house. I’ve got my existing workbench, with lower portion setup as shelving right now and I want to convert it to drawers. I’ve made drawers before, but didn’t love it, don’t really have the time to do it now, and would rather just buy them premade. These will just be used for tools and will be 100% utilitarian. They could be medium duty 1/2” plywood sides.

Does anyone know a good affordable source for premade drawers? The sizes I’m looking for should be pretty easily attainable – maybe 4”T x 24”W” x 16”D. Size would be flexible though.

Thanks for the input!

I’d suggest just making a simple set of drawers. if you dont care about the finishes, something like this could be done in a day for your entire workbench..

That’s what I was thinking. Just glue and nail
the bottoms on. Saves a lot of fuss.

Was thinking you might add one brace in the center for swelling.
Just my $.02
