This cool chest of drawers looks like an old-fashioned icebox, but instead of cubby-hole-size doors and a cramped interior, the entire front opens to reveal a bank of full-width drawers. Plan available in WOOD Store.
Hooking up your dust- and chip-making machines to a collector reduces your time spent cleaning, as well as—hopefully—the amount of fine dust that lingers in the air before eventually settling. We tested eight single-stage dust collectors priced from $325 to $850, including one unit with both bag and canister filter options.
Take charge of your mobile devices and confine the clutter of cords. This plan available in the WOOD Store.

Enhance your vintage style with this new take on a classic icebox. Instead of cubby-hole-size doors and a cramped interior, the entire front opens to reveal a bank of full-width drawers. It's equally at home in the dining room filled with table lines or in the bedroom cooling off some hot lingerie.
