My dad surprised me with an awesome work bench for my apartment this Easter. I was expecting an old computer desk I had him cut down to fit my space in our second bedroom/shop/art studio. He showed up with this amazing creation. It stand over 7 feet tall has over a 2' x 4' foot print. He built in the light and power strip before he got here. Completely blew me away, one of the best gifts I have ever been blessed with. As you can see it is kinda naked still. I havent had the time to work on it that I would like. I put on another layer of 7/8 laminate from an old table and added some other doo-dads, but nothing really crazy. I have plans to build the top up 1 1/4" from the original 1 1/8" bringing it to a total of 2 3/8" over all. Then I will be inlaying a Large aluminum plate on the right front right corner, and a large piece of angle along the front. (Please note that both the angle and the plate will be flush with the surface and the table top will be built even thicker) Besides adding material to the sides (legs I guess) and adding 2 drill holders under the shelf in having trouble figuring out the best way to lay it all out. Especially when it comes to hand tools. I have more tool boxes than I can fit and I want my most used tools in arms reach. What would you do if you had this amazing blank slate? Let your imagination go crazy!
