I was able to take a couple of days off from work, so I decided that I would build this work bench. Until I get time to build the one shown in the video at Fine Woodworking. I got the plans from ShopNotes. It is made of mostly 3/4 baltic birch plywood and is wrapped with fir. One exception to the original plans is that I made the folding bench wider and it was made from some 1 1/2 shelving that I acquired before it reached a landfill. It has three cubby holes underneath and two supports that slide out to help hold the bench. I had to add the legs (adjustable) because the extra withe of the bench caused the case to pull from the wall(French cleat). I also put a couple of lag screws through the back and into the wall joist. I have holes drilled for my dogs and it took about 30 minutes for it to be covered with so much stuff that I had to clean it off to use the bench(imagine that). I still have a lot of work to do to get the peg board set up and you can see my drill bit cabinet to the left.
