Kevin, what about a face lift? By that I mean a nice sheet of birch ply or something with all of the holes templated, cut out and installed on the front of the workbench so the drawers all work and who cares what the original plan was. If there is too much mismatch the cutouts could become the drawer fronts also making everything an optical illusion.
And also meant to say but ran out of energy, get the drawers all shimmed and working first. Then using the ply on the front, a faux cover masking the irregularities behind.

God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
