You could leave the base of the workbench open if you'd like, but adding a storage system is one of the best ways to keep all the tools and supplies you'll be using organized and close at hand.

I built a couple cabinets that each hold a set of four drawers, like you see above. Later, the space between the cabinets will be enclosed by a

pair of doors. Or instead, you can add additional drawers by checking out the box at the bottom of the opposite page.

Adding a Drawer Cabinet. The nice thing about the cabinets is that they're identical and consist of only a few modular components: two side panels, four web frames, and some trim pieces (Figure 5).

The sides are just pieces of %" plywood. To cover up the edges, I used a tongue and groove joint to add a solid wood trim piece to the front edge. If you take a close look at Figure 5a, you can see how the trim piece extends past the inside face of the plywood. This provides a solid stop for locating the web frames that are added next.
