    Tartan, what a GREAT IDEA!!! I always say, two heads are better than one. I'd never have thought of that. Thanks!

    remove the doors and put up a curtain on a swinging arm! IF you think dust, etc will get into the drawers. Then again, depending on what you are storing, the doors probably won't be an issue!

    I have a antique chest that has doors to open and then drawers inside, I have it in my sewing room and the things I keep in it I dont use on a daily basis so its not a problem. Go for it.

    Those drawers inside the drawers may not be as much as a problem as you think. At least I hope not. My new kitchen cabinets are coming Friday and there is not one drawer that is not behind a door. Also took out the dishwasher and put in more cabinets because we never use it. For me, the correct height for cutting/pressing would trump everything else.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    If it's a large enough surface for cutting, and it's sturdy, I'd use the cabinet. Like someone else said, the doors can probably be removed. I love drawers!

    The right height - - - I would definitely go for it. I would store things that I don't use often so doors on the cabinet would pose no "big" problem. Height here would be the priority.
