I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.

Beautiful bench, could we have bigger photos?
Can't have too many drawers, drawers are good. I never understood all the wasted space under the top of one of those workbenches. There are eight drawers here (in the left 3 cubicles, none in the unseen 4th), all on full extension 25" slides. All four cubicles have a pull-out bottom. None are full pull-outs, but each is a different style/mfr (as noted below, for my experience).



I don't get to spend as much time in the garage as I'l like, so each drawer is different, I need the experience. Six drawers, bottom one is the original stamped steel that came with the cart, but with a full extension 18" slide (all share the same slide). The next two are 1/2" square alum framed, one with plexi sides, the other with alum sides (both have 1/4" plexi bottoms). Fourth up is 3/16" alum, sides and bottom, with a piece of 3/16" angle for the front lip. The top two are 1/2" steel frames with steel bottoms. Yes, clutter and chaos are my demons.

Taunton Press - always good for making me feel inadequate.
