Was researching this thread to look for some ideas regarding making drawers for under my trans bench for commonly used tools and parts

Kudos!
Very well done

Can I see a pic of the bottom of a drawer from the bottom side?
i.e.
turn the drawer upside down and then snap a photo

I think it's fabulous that you've decided to build your own tool box! I plan to make one too, but I am designing it with aluminum sheet and solid rivets (imagine that).

I really try not to pick at people's projects, but I am a bit concerned on the vertical pieces between each drawer. It doesn't look like you've planned for seasonal cross-grain wood movement...you may have an issue with splitting. You may do better in those center pieces with a horizontal cross bar at the bottom, a horizontal crossbar at the top, then two or three vertical crossbars to screw the drawer slides to (with a small vertical crossbar at the front, for appearance.)

Is pine just your favorite wood? I think it is great that you want to build an heirloom-quality piece and use all solid wood...that is cool...is there any reason you didn't step up to maple, or oak, or some other hardwood?.

Looking forward to seeing more pics as you progress.

Well he built it in 2009, so it's probably about as "progressed" as its going to get!

I wonder what he thinks about it now... a few years down the road after every day use

Any follow up snapshots / posts?
