If its a 22 x 34 drawer, that is "D" drawings.
This one is 26" x 38" inside. All metal--wooden ones pop up once in a while but the metal cabinets are pretty scarce. I got this one for twenty bucks from another business in our complex.

Yeah, not as messy as some. Like I said, a "working" shop needs to be clean or it just gets in your way. The past 40 years have been interesting because my brother; bless his soul, is a pig and I tend to be a neat freak, sometimes to the point of being anal--has made for some interesting moments...

I made the comment kinda "tongue in cheek" because the picture was sideways and it looked like everything was hangin' off the wall...

Grady,

For someone who is "serious" about shop work that's a lot of fishing rods hangin' on the back wall there...

Ahhh yes. The picture was the correct way around when I uploaded it, not sure what happened.

Not too messy

Office: Yes, shop dog checking out the floor.

Hidden.... Steerable Sled. Christmas present when I was five years old (ahem, been a while.... )
Chairs/Tables. Built to order for my Grandfather in 1925 for his family of five (there are five chairs).
Yes, that is a Starrett surface plate and a few other things from forty years of "buy a good tool, pay cash"

LeBlond lathe (circa 1939... 75 years later still producing chips).
Edlund Drill Press. Circa 1930? Note column has four bolts, easy to shim to be dead on. Lots of neat features for the day (& today!)
I got tired of drill bits all over the shop, hence the open cabinet next to the drill press. Easy to roll over to the milling machine if needed, but everything drill press related is on it.
