  • Tom, Great idea. I have two homes and making sure you have the right tool at the location you are working is important. Happy Creating, Karen Marie Dragonfly & Lily Pads

  • Tom, Nice build! And using the boxes as additional work area by flipping them over is a great idea. Did you use any drawer guides for the pull-outs?

  • Awesome project Tom. It's a damn shame I can't vote for you! This is way cooler and definitely more original.

  • Thank you all for the LOVE. The truck bed work station was a fun build. Great question about the drawer guides. Answer: I kept this very simple and rugged because hey,....it is a work station for the truck. Also because of the weight of the tools inside I did not want drawer guides to add extra friction and make them harder to pull out. What I did do was leave plenty of room on all sides of the drawers from the housing, this allowed the drawers freedom and again less friction. And to help cover up these large gaps on the drawer face 1 added aluminum angles , to fill the gap, add durability, ohh and look so COOL.....
