If you squint real hard you can see a workbench underneath all that clutter. This is the first addition to the workshop that I every made. Before this I was using a steel bookshelf or a a couple saw horses and spare boards. I still sometimes revert to the saw horses and boards because I can never seem to keep this workbench clean. I followed the plans in The Complete Book of Woodworking by Tom Carpenter. It is a very useful workbench and simple to make, I could see myself making another one when the need arises…judging by that picture, the need is here.

That looks nice and sturdy. You should get a lot of use out of it. I have been giving my one car garage/shop a makeover. Feel free to browse my blog. You might find some inspiration for your shop.

I also made a workbench that serves triple duty as workbench, outfeed table, and assembly table. But before that, I used a portable workstation that I would set up on saw horses or a workmate.
