Monster pul-out Matroska drawer under workbench
« on: October 17, 2020, 11:11 AM »
Hi, I’m sorry for my technical English. Hopefully, you will not be lost in translation.

I wanted to share with you one of my workshop projects - huge drawer under my workbench.


I prefer to have access from the top whenever it is possible so instead of traditional cabinet with doors (with front access) I created this monster :-) I am sharing several photos how I did it and also how I use it.



The “mother” drawer is beech and the “children” are spruce. It moves on eight tiny  (5mm) rigid wheels as I wanted to utilize all the possible height. Even the thing is heavy it slides out quite easily. The internal drawers moves on simple wooden support brackets (beech) sunken in a guide grooves. Both spruce drawers can be easily removed to have full access to the things below.





Besides using it as storage it can be also easily used as vertical support for bigger panels/components when working on the bench.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Stay safe
Mike

I really like that, provides easy access to a lot of things that tend to get pushed back & out of sight on typical shelves.

Well done sir.
