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.
