I found some steal engine crates from my local boat dealer for $10.00 each and thought the base would be great for something. Then the idea hit me, shop tables, you can never have too many shop tables, and these tables can double as wood storage and firewood racks for the shop stove. I love it when you can repurpose what some would consider waste and turn it into something handy.

Great use of otherwise useless stuff.
Always comes in handy for someone.
