Workbench storage drawers

Workbench storage drawers Over the Christmas holiday, I started a shop cleanup and re-organization. One thing I really needed was more storage in general. The shelf under my workbench was a poorly utilized space and had turned into a catch-all. I decided to start there and build a slide-in cabinet with a set of drawers. The full build blog is here.The carcass is 3/4” birch ply, the drawer boxes are 1/2” birch ply – all from Home Depot. The front of the carcass is edged with some cherry.I did not want to use any handle hardware that I would bang my knees on, so I wanted a recessed pull. This mid-century credenza provided the inspiration for mine:The drawer fronts are mdf, edged and veneered with anigre, with a 1/2” radius cove on the backside of the arc pull.The front of the exposed drawer box is painted black to disguise the exposed crack between drawers. Quite effective.And the obligatory stair-step drawer shots:
Now I just need to fill them up. In an organized way. Somehow. :)

Family Crest

Family CrestThe design for this project was extracted from various generic family crests, whose design elements (in my opinion) were crude at best. I improved on the various elements, and created my own. I used a particularly beautiful piece of black walnut (~8” x 11”) which was very dense. It took a year to complete (I was working for a living at the time) and I consider it one of my better effort!

The full set

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


The full setThe original “tray” I posted was a poor representation of the finished project, this picture is better and includes some of the other “artifacts” that were part of final wedding gift to my son and his bride. It includes salad tongs, coasters (lased with a monogram) I designed for the occasion, a “holder” for the coasters, two wine “cork” seals and a small bowl. I also created a jewelry box that incorporated embedded magnets that kept the lid and the two levels aligned and “attached” when closed.There were “fragments which I used for knife “scales” as well as an Oboe reed holder (also displayed in my postings) which were about all that remained from the original maple slab I had worked from.
