This was posted in the 'old' forum and thought I would update what I have done. Also bring over a couple of photos too.
This started because I was feed up with lack of storage. So I put everything off and started to build a new bench base. Recyling the top on the existing bench.
Quick and simple lap joints glued together makes the frame. Surprisingly sturdy too!
Simple plywood carcass for the drawers.
Nearly 2 full days of work to make the drawers but they are done!
Making all the drawers was like production factory work!
Ripped sheet good to strips for 17 drawers. (17 strips)
Cross cut them to size. (68 pieces).
Dado's the sides (136 dado's)
Cut the dado's for the drawer bottoms (136 dado's)
Bandsaw and routed the finger slots (18 pieces)
Cut the Luan into bottom panels (16 pieces..??)
Assemble 17 drawers
(Almost) finished project
I added a back for rigidity and for extra storage space. Rearranged the shop and my clamps ended up in the far corner. So I needed new and better storage.
Still have to add some more brackets for spring clamps and some c-clamps but I like this!
