No need to steal the idea, it is freely given.

The original steel legs were 32" X 22", so I kept the same footprint. But drawer slides 32 inches long wouldn't be practical, even if I could find them. So, I just made some narrow drawers to fill the space in the back.

I had plenty of space in my shop until I kept dragging more tools home that needed floor space - and wall space. Like many others, I've been forced to put some machines on rollers. The drawers let me take some tools off the pegboard and free up some space there.

Those back drawers are perfect for those long slender things like ships augurs. Never seem to be able to find a good spot to store stuff like that.

@dirt_dobber ,

Norm's design has a weak point in the two rear legs, but it is easily fixed. Install a board between the rear legs, just below the seat back. It will eliminate the rear leg twisting and breaking when people sit in the chair on a sideways slopping ground. I had to repair one of my chars, then installed the board in all 6 of them, and I haven't had a problem with them since installing the boards 7 years ago. Keep the bolts tight too. I used Loctite.

You did a great job on the chair. This is just a suggested improvement to make them last longer.

Building a 48" wide vanity cabinet and 36" wide medicine cabinet for my bathroom remodel. Someone else is doing the actual remodel, I'm just doing the vanity and medicine chest.

It's a good project, I had to buy a new table saw to complete it ;-)

Just started making a utility cabinet for the basement bathroom to match the vanity that I made. The plan is to have doors top and bottom, overlapping like the vanity as I don't want a center stile as there will be a pull-out shelf at the bottom of the upper half cabinet. I may go with European hinges this time as the doors are larger and it's going to be easier to get them adjusted to hang properly with the minimum gap at the overlap. All the parts, except for the two adjustable shelves and the top, are cut out and ready to assemble. Kind of jumped into the project, so working off a rough sketch. Planning to biscuit join the stiles of the face frame to the sides but pocket screw the rails to the top, bottom and fixed center shelf.
