Garage Workbench: Done!

Garage Workbench

This is SO not pretty, but… it wasn’t intended to be. I also didn’t get any before pics because that whole thing was a disaster before I started working on this and I wasn’t going to share the nasty.

Anyway!

The two cabinets were originally separate and on crappy plastic legs. They are now connected and have locking wheels.

The benchtop is my old jewelry bench, which is getting built new when I redo the craft space. I made some major modifications, taking down the short tool walls and extended the surface so that there would be a full overhang of the cabinets underneath. The surface is attached to the cabinets so the whole thing can easily be moved when I need to do a bigger project (like the cabinets).

While it is kind of ugly because I really only used scraps or repurposed stuff I already had with the exception of the wheels, it was the absolute perfect project to test out all of my new tools except my router. I think I have a decent handle on most of them now. Even the nail guns!

I has nail gun. I. am. BADASS!! 🤣🤣

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

    1. That was massively important because were it normally sits makes it nearly impossible to use my big miter saw (one piece I’ve had for years and use the most). That and I knew that it would make the whole thing insanely heavy and would be impossible to move if we ever had to rearrange the garage.
