Instant Drawers
Large plastic boxes, the kind that restaurants use for bussing dishes,
are perfect for shop drawers. They're strong, durable and lightweight,
plus they have built-in handles. They're perfect for storing and
transporting workshop essentials, from screws to power tools. They come
ready-made and they're super-easy to install. I'll never build another
storage drawer! Bus boxes are designed to hang from their rims, so
screwed-on cleats make perfect drawer supports. I like to graduate the
distance between cleats, so the bottom boxes have more headroom. This
wider spacing makes it easier to see what's inside the lower boxes. For
large items, I reduce the number of boxes in the stack, so each box has
ample headroom.
