Every workshop or garage needs a good workbench. The more I started the build, the more I needed a large, flat surface to make building easier. Up to this point, I have been using a 4-foot folding table that I still have from my Dj-ing days. It worked, but it became very difficult to use for the larger projects such as the patio table tabletop. I came across this plan for a good sized work bench, but unfortunately it would take up almost half of my garage. Since building is still a hobby and not a full time thing, I still wanted to be able to put both cars in the garage and have all of my tools stored and put away when not in use. Instead of having to modify the plans to make a smaller workbench, the Shanty 2 Chic website did that for me! This workbench would fit perfectly at the front of the garage and have enough storage for my tools as well. My brother Ryan came by and helped me put this together in a matter of a couple hours. For the most part it was very simple, except for the fact that the guy at Lowes didn't cut the MDF correctly and I had to bust out the table saw to cut it down to size. For future reference, cutting MDF is very dusty. I didn't stain or paint the work bench because that would happen naturally with all of the upcoming projects I have planned.
