Thought I’d share some images in case anyone else is looking for inspiration. Before working on this with a furniture maker, I did loads of research into rolling mechanics tool drawers, metal flat files, etc. Ultimately realized what I wanted (functional, attractive) just wasn’t out there.
The table is an old butcher block for which a friend welded some steel legs.
The cabinet is custom designed. Simple, inexpensive woods with nice heavy duty file cabinet hardware so that the drawers can support lots of weight. Three slots for storing upright sheets of wood.
