This space-saving cabinet adds storage to your workbench, plus its weight adds a little extra strength and stability.
This underbench cabinet actually serves two purposes. Of course it keeps tools within reach and easy to put away. The other benefit is sort of a windfall. When the cabinet is filled with tools, it adds weight and stability to the bench. The cabinet is an open-front plywood box that’s divided into two compartments. The left compartment is for storing bulky items like portable power tools. These are concealed behind a flip-up door. The right compartment has five drawers for hand tools or hardware.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
