Default sturdy workbench

This workbench has proven very useful over the years. I made a metal frame that houses the drawers and left some room at the top for bigger tools. It's really sturdy because the back side (not shown) has 2 welded straps that go from corner to corner on the frame.

The top is made of old scraps of cherry, oak, maple and it has holes drilled in it for bench dogs. The drawers are made of hardwood with half blind dovetails.

The only thing I dont like about the cabinet is the cheap drawer glides which I will replace with 100 percent extension glides.
