2M4A0072As you can see, I did get into the shop this week to begin on my workbench storage boxes. The thing I most like about building my own design – after 15 plus years building 18th- and early 19th-Century designs for customers – is that I can change the design clear up until I can’t. After reading a few of the comments in my last post (click here), I have made a couple changes. (Thank you Tom8021 for reminding me about Tage Frid’s books – I went back for a refresher on plywood joinery.)

Changes? I decided that these under-the-bench storage boxes were too deep at 22 1/2″, so I shortened the depth to 15 1/2″. 2M4A0073Also, many of the comments focused on the idea that my workbench storage boxes didn’t need fancy dovetails if they were to always sit under the bench. That’s also a great point. However, I think these boxes can be travel boxes, so I plan to build them out of yellow pine and with dovetailed corners.
