whimsofchaz Thanks Doug. That is what I liked about it. So simple yet a easy solution for a lot of different applications. The hard board idea is great also. You are just full of it...ideas I mean.

kp91 @whimsofchaz My#2 daughter confirms the bottom sticks out about 3/8 inch

I used tempered hardboard with the smooth side down. The drawer boxes are pocket holed together, and a couple of screws countersunk in from the bottom holds them in place.

kp91 Chuck,

I honestly don't remember! I am away from home for the next several weeks, I will have to ask my daughters to measure. I think it is 3/8 or so. Stay tuned for the answer!

whimsofchaz Doug thank you for the wonderfully simple storage idea. I am in the middle of a shop expansion and that will come in handy. The lip on the bottoms is that 1/4 or 3/8 wide? The more I think about the idea it is just great.

I too like all the storage space provided by the shallow drawers. Reminds me of a quality tool cabinet so you can get to all your tools while having them well organized.

Nice job!

Laramie Now that's a router table set up. I need to start on one for my shop.

kp91 Daniel,

Thanks for the comment. As I mentioned, I stole the basic idea from the old Woodworking at Home video magazine. The idea was theirs, I just tweaked it to my needs.

PaulDaniels I like how you used every available space, none wasted. You can tell you took a lot of thought into your design, very nice.

Famineguy Very nice table and great that you were able to recycle it. I like all the drawers too. I am "redoing" my shop right now and adding drawers in all tables / stands wherever I have the space.
