Shop Wall completed

I framed in a wall for my shop to house my tool cabinets. The cabinets are “built in,” secured to the wall and wrapped in black painted poplar with union jack aluminum panels for accents. The bench top is 10’ long, 21” wide, and 1.5” thick oak from my back yard cut into alternating 3/4”, 1”, and 1 1/4” strips. The top was originally 1 3/4” but I had a few issues and had to settle on 1 1/2. Because “I’m spoiled” (as my wife would say,) I used the wall to house a flat panel TV, radio/ CD player and a built in area for cord reels – accessible from both sides of the wall. Additionally I put lights in to illuminate the bench top. Again, I am quite pleased. Thanks for looking.

Nicely laid out. Like the air hose reels inset into the wall, nice space saving idea.

Awesome bench you’ve made there. Great that fell the top from your property. Thanks for the link, I’ve got one on its way.
