A Friend of mine recently purchased his first house, however the garage was quite a bit smaller than he was used to and needed a workbench that he could collapse and get out of the way when necessary. He doesn’t do any woodworking, more of a classic car restorer, so the bench is probably going to act more as a shelf than taking a lot of abuse. He’s happy with it and fits perfectly in the small space we required. There are two 2’x4’ bench tops that can be used independently from one another, and the bracings swing in and are hidden when not in use.

Very practical. You can tell by the wall posters that he is a car guy. LOL

I like it. I should probably do something like that in my garage.

Very nice benches, and I like that Trans Am t-top he has setting there. Looks like he must have replaced
the bird decal, or the car has been garaged a lot. If I had the wall space, I could use one of those benches.
Thank you for sharing.
