Thought it would be awesome to have seating available when I’m all done working in the garage! Lift up the top and wham! You have a nice little bench to sit on. Of course, I did this when I completed my garage redo project last year. I’ll upload that one too…

I don’t recall seeing this one at “Benches Are Us”. Great build Sparky. PS.. Dont forget to take your coffee of the bench before taking a break.

LOL – I’d never get to set on the bench as the top of my workbenche(s) are ALWAYS full ! that is a nice job on the “combo” bench !

Neat idea. I have an old milk crate I sit on from time to time. Your idea looks much more relaxing!

Just needs a trough on the back of it for easy post-project clean up :)

I’d make one of these, except my workbenches haven’t had clean and clutter-free tops since their first use.

That has to be a first. A workbench that converts to a bench. LOL. Awesome.

cool idea! And nice build.

I agree with woodbutcher though, there is always too much going on on my bench.

I like it, although I agree it would never work with my bench for the obvious reasons stated above :D

It would work really nicely as a porch table/bench though.
