In Pursuit of Storage

I got tired of all the “stuff” on my out-feed/assembly table. So after the rosin paper holder, (my previous post) I added this drawer and also an F-clamp storage rack to my table. Nice when things have a home. This is all made from dumpster dive 3/4 plywood and I think I paid $25 for the full extension draw glides from Lowes. Since I had glued some of the filler pieces to the underside of the top for the vise, I just notched the drawer front around it. 1” EMT for the drawer pull. I spent about 1/2 day laying out the dimensions and the actual assembly of the drawer. Maybe 1 hour on the clamp rack. I used a stacked dado blade on the table saw to create the notches every 1 1/2 inches, about 5/16th wide. It holds 20 clamps.

Thanks for looking.

This is really nice! I never have enough storage space. I should do this to the table I just made. Nice work!

Everything clean and well organized and most important – on hand. Some very good storage ideas.
