We have storage for demonstration of our stuff. But it’s more relevant to store stuff in crafting tables because it have two times more capacity.
Since you can craft not only from table’s container but also from your inventory, the necessarity of the last had vanish. We can to use the table without inner container but we still need to store a lot of different kind of woods, stones, soils, foliage, seeds, leafs, trophies and more others more than to demonstrate it on shelves and storage blocks.
And so I suggest to remove table’s inner container and add some kind of litter bin instead of. IMHO these bins must have two more slots per block than shelves — 6 at all. It not need to be stackable like storages but if it will join to crafting table it could be an advantage. Four nearly Bins for each table is enough I think.
Litter Bins could have progression as other decorative blocks “wood–stone–metal–alloys–gem/gleam” or alternative progression “wood–cloth–leather”. It’s very important to have possibility to craft Bin very early — with your first table or right after.
