Maybe a silly question, but how do you hold the trigger on the drill? Looks like it would be difficult to reach.

It's a grain mill incognito! Seemed like a fun idea

The drill has a button on it to keep it running, once I got it going the right direction and stuck on I just unplugged it to stop it. I probably will put a switch on it somehow (Maybe a surge protector somewhere that I can hit the switch on) so I don't have to unplug it when I'm done milling.

The top drawer is now useless.

The 2nd drawer will catch grain so I plan on keeping it empty. the 3rd drawer is now the hopper so I won't keep anything in there either. The bottom drawer I may use to store specialty grain, not sure yet how I'm going to store my grains. I'll probably also keep a little hand-held broom in there to help me sweep the last of the grains from the hopper into the mill.

You forgot to allocate some space for the mice.

Good point, I may end up putting anything I keep in that drawer in some ammo cans I have left over, would keep them fresher anyway. I'll probably go the same route as I've read around here with a metal trashcan for the base grain. Generally I'll probably buy specialty grain as I need it since I never know what I'll need.

Congrats.
I look forward to the wing back chair Mash Tun.

Make sure you don't ferment in the same room as the chest of drawers.
