Came by some old salvaged draws and made a carcase for them to sit in. Fun with the router – I made a jig that road in the groove for the previous draw to ensure even spacing. The brief from the client SWMBO was to make it look like it belongs in an old shop (UK shop for which the US should read store) or “olde shoppe”.

Sweet, I see tons of uses for this in my shop right now, throw in some small removable boxes and spacers…. Nice work bringing something old and breathing some life back into it….

A great looking unit. Loads of potential for organising different things in my workshop. And the best part is you recycled used timber to make it. Fantastic workmanship. thanks for posting.
