hey from derby city!

Hey! My name is Sand and I'm from Louisville, KY. I work at the local public library here as the Adult Bookmobile driver. I've been riding for awhile in Louisville. I'm currently converting a 1980's Schwinn 564 into a singlespeed (I was originally converting to fixed but was advised I might want to try singlespeed first because of ankle surgery last year. who knows) But I've recently been working on bikes at home and I really enjoy this! I am getting ready to build a workbench (so if anyone has any plans or advice for a workbench it would be great!) I also have some other bikes I'm tinkering on.. anyway thought I'd drop in and say hello!

Fellow member jsharr has a set of plans for a really nice workbench. Let me see if I can get him to post them here.

Is the Bookmobile really Adult Books?

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

thanks. and no the Adult Bookmobile is just for senior citizens stuff like that. But some of the romances they read might as well be classified as that.

Welcome to the forums.

Here is a link to the plans for a bench that I built.

Here are some pics of my bench, modified to fit my garage.

Thanks. It is a very functional bench. Not perfect, but fits my needs. The fold up work area is very nice, and folds down so we can still get both cars in the garage.
