I have a new corner, or wall, in the workshop. Made a quick bench out at my dad’s shop, using his power tools, mainly because I don’t really have room for anything major. Used two old drawers and built around them. Put the new bench in. Just put the stainless top on it. Hung some pegboard. Nice little home for the dehumidifier and fixtures underneath. Drawers for my sharpening items. I hung the pegboard from the wall with big brackets over the aluminum bar. At some point I can make storage up top, maybe 18″ deep of open rail shelving, for wood or lightweight fixtures, etc… Not much more I can fit in the shop.

Modular instrument hangers. Made this for my basses. Aluminum bar stock, stainless sheet metal hangers. Hangers move anywhere along the rail. Shown with my baby, 1984 Ken Smith.
