Workbench with drawers from scrap kitchen cabinets




Nothing fancy. Jointery is just glue and screws. I added 2 more casters per broad side, cause they were back ordered when I put it together. The drawers are all 3/4 plywood, the fronts and sides I was able to salvage from the cabinets I removed from the house. I generally prefer to re use cabinets as cabinets, but these were custom built to fit the old kitchen layout. Whomever made them did a wonderful job. But they were just too big for me to repurpose without tremendous modifications.

Workbench with drawers from scrap kitchen cabinets

This is from the construction process



This was with the original table saw I built it
for. The opening just below the saw was for the saw dust, it just fell out the bottom. I sold that saw and bought the delta.

Thanks, its really become a crucial part of my work shop. The drawers on the left hand side store mainly corded tools, and the drawers on the right, top drawer holds most of my cordless tools, then next down is mainly bits and blades for the tools, and my kreg pocket jigs, then the ones below that have all my hardware.

Below the table saw, that drawer holds jigs, and push sticks and some vacuum hose for the saw.

The table is very heavy loaded down, so it does not move too easily, but if I want to move it, I can. The casters are made by Skelang called leveling casters. 2200 lbs capacity per set of 4, I have 8 casters on the table.

Id add a picture, but I guess Im maxed out for the App Im using without paying money.

Heres a link though. https://www.amazon.com/Skelang-Level.../dp/B07V1NTLDP
