…that I would never put storage cabinets below my workbench. The open architecture of early benches is your friend.

    People have different priorities. That looks to me like a pretty small benefit at pretty high cost.

      My underbench cabinet has space above it for holdfasts, and like BLZeebub’s has drawers that go all the way through. So I suppose I could do that, or could clamp across the front of the bench and get at stuff in drawers.

    That’s why you need more than one bench! Mine has storage below BUT my drawers are accessible from BOTH sides. So if I were to encounter a situation like the one above, I just have to remove the right drawer. So nya!
