You’re very welcome. Don’t worry about the hardness of the top—you can always pad it with cedar wood laminated (although you may need to use an adhesive that works with teak woods silica content.)
Also, I think that everyone gets used to their bench. Here is my bench that I replaced with my previous longer model and I’m not fully used to it yet—look at the mess! This drives me nuts, so I will now need to make a tool cabinet adjacent to it (where the milk crates are.)

Jake, that is a beautiful bench! Wow! Ah yes, tool cabinets and shelves, I need them too.28 March 2018 at 9:01 pm #512678Ecky HParticipant28 March 2018 at 9:48 pm #512750jakegevorgianParticipant
Ecky, here are some pictures of the drawer.
Basically it’s a standalone unit. It has two wooden runners at the bottom resting on the bottom shelf rails. This allows me to slide the drawer cabinet left to right if need be. It’s a good storage for handy items. Not good for storing larger tools.
It’s made from pine wood. The handles are ebony wood that I turned on the late. First I picked the handle screws to determine the slightly smaller drill bit to cut a hole in the handle blank. Then I drove the screw into the handle blank, and since it’s ebony wood it forms the thread tap nicely. I’ve mounted the handle with the screw into the Jacobs jaw lathe chuck and formed the handle shape.
