Sliding box keeps workbench accessories within reach
When I built a new workbench, I liked the idea of having a tool trough on the back. But I did not want to sacrifice the table space permanently. So I came up with the idea of adding a recessed T-track to the back. This lets me add (or subtract) a tool trough or any other useful workbench accessory, such as a glue bottle holder.
The only modification I made to the standard T-track was to use longer mounting screws to ensure that the track could handle the load. The great thing about this method is that I can easily reposition or remove any workbench accessories if they get in the way in my space-limited shop.
