Ever since i really got into garages and creating a space of my own i've wanted a solid workbench. Well i think i've finally realized that vision. I've only ever had a work surface in the past as space was always at a premium. I've been doing a ton of research and playing with sizing and specs for several months and i finally closed on one last night as it was $50 off.



Its a really solid piece and being around $80 cheaper then the Gladiator one that i was also eyeing made it the right one. My plan was to have my little craftsman chest roll under it, and to my surprise the actual metal surface is identical. I'll post a better quality pic later but these will have to do for now.

Just playing around with the placement....




The hose bib presented a little hiccup in my vision as it was originally where i had wanted a tool box but i think having my table there with the open portion for my stool will make it perfectly functional for my needs.

And this side shows you the current bane of my existence.

Looking forward to the build.

I hated having the hose bib at the back as you are always having to snake the hose past everything in the garage to get it out to where its only ever needed. I relocated mine (used 3/4" pipe and a ball valve) to the FRONT of the garage. I was lucky that I could re-route it within the basement because of the house floor plan.

WAY more practical and I can hose down the neighbors house across the street if I ever needed to.

Good ol Crappy Tire. Great deals sometimes, that's always how I end up with big tools I wouldn't have bought otherwise (think thickness planer for $90, reg like $350, Welder for $130, reg $450). If you walk in there at the right time it can be better than hunting for used stuff. Bench looks great, I'm sure you'll appreciate the usable surface space.

That is ideal for sure.

Honestly they get a bad wrap for a variety of reasons; however i really like their pricing and return policies. Almost anything i want from there eventually goes on sale and with their online price alert feature it makes it super easy. Doesn't hurt that our new place is about 3 kms from one of their bigger locations.

dubber,

The new bench looks good (and solid). You picked the right color, and size.. the rolling tool box fits perfect. It's already starting to get that you look, and you've only got the one item. I'm sure you'll have more interesting stuff happening in the next month or so.

Yes sir. I'm also using this thread to self-motivate me haha. My wife leaves soon for two weeks in Spain so I'll have a lot of free time to devout to this project.

It had been my intention to do so, however in the end it was left behind. Apparently the garage helped to clinch the deal for the buyer which I was very happy to hear. He originally wanted everything included but after some negotiations we settled on just leaving the floor.

Dubber, all that cardboard will be history before you know it.

And with your two-week garage work tour forthcoming, we're eager to see you continue working your proven garage magic!

Thanks man. I remember going through this to a much lesser degree when i was setting up my last place, it was driving me nutz. But these boxes are HUGE, especially from the new TV and the large furniture pieces.

If only it were that easy, but since i'm within the city limits, its not only frowned upon but illegal. I'm about 2 blocks away from our nearest Fire Station which would no doubt be on site within a few minutes.

Unfortunately not. We had a nice Chiminea from my mom who used it for decoration only but we had no use for it (at the time) so my friend who lives out of the city now has it.
