Save steps with two-way slides
The middle of your shop makes a handy location for your workbench surface—except when you're on one side and the drawers you need to access are on the other. Save extra footwork by installing two-way drawers. Lee Valley sells regular-extension two-way slides 38" long (#02K0738, 800-871-8158, or leevalley.com). For a simpler, hardware-free solution, adapt the two-way drawer design shown. The full-length drawers slide out from either side, riding on two wooden strips at the bottom of each drawer opening. To support their weight, the drawer sides and fronts are 3⁄4 "-thick stock.
