Hello All,

Thought I'd post a pic of some cabinets and workbench I've built over the past few weekends.
Always enjoy seeing pics of others shops so here's one to contribute.

Cheers, J

Very nice!

I have a question about your drawers. It looks like you have ovals cut into them as handles? I've always worried about sawdust getting all over everything if I left even the tiniest gap. Of course that was before I used anything from Festool!

Do let us know how that works out for you, and specifically if you'd do it again? I have some cabinets I need to build and that kind of front is on my list for consideration.

Thanks Guys,

Wow, this was a side job (not my place), kind of designed/built on the fly. I'm planning to do something similar w/ my shop. I do like the simple functionality of the no hardware drawers, although insides might get a bit dusty.

thanks again, J

A simple solution, if you want to retain the look of no hardware, is to make a small box inside the drawer which lets your fingers in but keeps the dust out. You may of course have to vac out the finger holes, but better that than the whole drawer.

  Do you remember the depth of the top? Your plan looks as if it would fit my shop very well.
