Most workbenches feature a base that leaves a lot of open and unused space under the bench. My Split-Top Roubo has a shelf on the bottom that pretty much only serves as a place to collect junk. That's why I'm going to build a handy storage cabinet that gives me a great place to store tools without getting in the way of bench's moving parts. While this unit will be custom-designed to fit the Split-Top Roubo, I suspect it won't be too difficult to modify it for just about any workbench design.
