Wouldn’t it be great to have a convenient place close to your
bench to hold the tools you use most often? Better yet, how about
a place right under your bench? Well, that’s the idea of the
slide-out storage bins shown at left. You just pull out a bin to get
the tool you need, then slide the bin back in. In short, your tools,
bits, and blades are only an arms’ reach away. As you can see
in the second photo, the tool bins are designed to fit in a case that
tucks into the opening under a workbench. The Utility Bench shown
here was featured in the Nov./Dec. 2001 issue of Workbench.
If you’d like to build this bench as a companion project
to these tool storage bins, see the link to the right.
