Default Workshop drawers for my wife

My wife picked up some little metal planters that looked like drawers from an A.C. Moore closeout sale for only a little more than $1.00 each. So for $9.00 and a little scrap plywood I made this little drawer chest for her workshop - she makes chainmaille, steampunk and stuff from old silver plate silverware.

BTW - she's pretty happy.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

A happy wife is the primary goal and the secret to a good life. Looks like you're well on your way.
