« Part 2: Building a Second Workshop on My Balcony Part 3 of My Woodworking Journey series Part 4: My First Table From Two Years Ago »

In my previous post, I talked about creating a compact workbench to enjoy woodworking from my apartment. In the past week, I managed to complete it by adding storage drawers.

I don’t really have much experience building cabinets, so I took a different approach. I build the drawers how I made my boxes, with miter joints. The tricky part was getting the drawer measurements right.

I made the drawer fronts from Southern Yellow Pine and the drawer pulls from Acasia to match the rest of the workbench.

I’m glad it turned out ok. I matched the grain as much as possible.
