As I am working on this workshop, I have given it a new name. A Poor Man’s Workshop.

Okay, I admit it. I think I am in the running for the biggest cheapskate award, but you have to work with what you have. Right?

Here are some workbenches I made out of free countertops/cabinets and wood I bought off of Craigslist.

I have a total of about $25 in both workbenches.

I just scored another free countertop for another workbench I plan on building this week.

After I make the last workbench, I am going to start moving in the tools. :)

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."
