Two views of how I arranged tools in the top drawer of the bench. The trays are all removable, if needed. The tray with the vernier caliper slides from side to side. The trays are constructed with small dimensional lumber purchased at the hobby store. Unfortunately, none of the drawers are self supporting, so in order to reach tools in the back, the drawer must be removed entirely. Not too much of a concern as I try to put the least used tools in the back.

Meanwhile, the work goes on, on the other drawers.

Bench Modification continues

At the end of the last post, I said something about putting together some jewelry. Well. the intentions were good but, I got side tracked. Again. So, what have I been doing? Well, the great bench improvement saga continues to creep along. I've been making removable wooden trays to fit into the bench drawers to hold the various and most used tools. It has been fun and a pain at the same time. Trying to figure out where to put what, and what works best this way or that. Trying to conserve space while at the same time make the tools easily accessible. nd, of course, me being me, I made some mistakes. Progress, however slow, is being made. The top drawer of the bench is almost complete and I'll post a picture of it later in the week.

All for now, John
