Part 3: Workbench drawers

The workbench I nearing completion. In this last part of the series, I built the drawers and doors for the workbench and also installed it in its final location in the shop.

I needed to build four drawers for the workbench. At the top, I have a big one spanning the whole width of the bench. I use this mainly for my tools. Then I have three additional drawers on the left side. I currently use them for my scrap wood, but I think this needs to be changed at some point as it is not the best usage.

I’ve also installed walls on both sides of the workbench to keep dust from going into it. Also, installed a door on the right side of the bench, to hide the shop vac. When design the bench I’ve made an error with this door, as I do not have space on the left side to install the door with my regular hinges so it can still move. So the two parts of the doors are connected and hinge on each other. It would have been better to have one door. I’ve also miscalculated the width of the three bottom drawers and made them too small. So I’ve fixed this with some spacer blocks for the time being.
