Re: FWW Essential workbench

Two ways I know of.

1. Make a thick bottomed drawer and carve out the tool shapes. This is the hard way.

2. Make a suitable insert that fits in the drawer. Cut out the tool shapes with a coping saw or a scroll saw. Smooth, glue in, line with felt or leather. This is the easy way.
