Freukin' schwizzle...finally, a workbench!

My Dad had an old cabinet and counter top in his basement that he was using for eBay shipping. He's done with all that crap, so he gave it to me. I had to cut some decent 2x4' supports across the top of the cabinets to screw the top down to. The plywood "tool board" on the back was an afterthought...dadgum glad I did it though!

Now I need to get a vise and bench grinder.

Yeah man...I've been looking for a good one. I can't seem to find any except online, so I think I'm gonna order one. I've got a small socket set & Gear Ratchet set in drawers and another toolbox with my "automotive tools". 'Don't have much for hex bits, though I need to get some b/c I asked for a torque wrench for my birthday.

I use two that I got from a kitchen gadget store made for hanging knifes in the kitchen. Works great, and strong enough to hold anything you'd want it too. Like 6 bucks each or so. They have them at Ikea also if you have one around you. Maybe at target or wal-mart too.

That's very cute and the tools are all so neatly arranged. All ya gotta do now is take a black sharpie and draw an outline around each one.

I'm inherently anal when it comes to stuff like that. As soon as I got married and had kids, I was dealt the harsh reality that the house was no longer going to be anal...but my dadgum shop area can be how I want it.
