Project Information

I have a lot of screws and hardware that I have accumulated in my shop and I wanted some drawers for tool storage. I put these together. Not perfect but they do the trick. 10 sheets of 3/4" and 5 sheets of 1/2". I used the cheaper plywood from the box stores. Didn't pony up the money for Birch or Maple plywood. Probably a mistake. It took extra time to deal with warped plywood and voids. The cheaper materials affected the fit and finish. Overall I am happy with how it turned out. I used 3/4" on the back and cut dadoes, rabbets, and grooves for the vertical and horizontal supports for added support. I have plans on AutoCAD if anyone has interest.

Looks like you can store more than just hardware in that thing.

Nice job.

Certainly an impressive construction

They look fit for purpose so dont be concerned abut cosmetics.
Now a question:-

I did try to work it out for myself but was not sucesssful so.
What is the round pipe capped off below the yellow containers?

BTW
1. I spotted an angle grinder or two as I snooped about looking for the answer !!
2. You must be single I would not be able to get away with stashing tools on my enclosed veranda, the wife "owns " that for sewing!!

That is neat K'58... literally NEAT!

Now all you need is a sophisticated Dewey system to find which drawer you hid that bottle of scotch…

This is great. Giving me some ideas. Some say you can never have too many tools. A corollary is that you can never have too many drawers to store all those tools.

This is an excellent example of 'wall unit' shop storage. It's well done and it's a wonderful addition to your shop. Congratulations!

The pipe is the draft control for the flu pipe on my oil furnace.

I have a wonderful wife. She would allow me to keep my tools in our bedroom if I really wanted. She is a GREAT woman and I love her very much. I don't know how she puts up with me…..........
