Workbench with tool storage

Hi everyone, happy new year to all, 

I made a workbench to organising my tools and clean-up my garage during last week (first week of holiday). I thought it might be useful for other members of the community to see the photos of the different phase of the project.

Below are the final product photos. I still hanging my tools as you can see.

I add some more photo here from the beginning of the project to the end. hope this can help if you want to make a similar workbench.

All timbers are cuts to the size in Bunnings, but I need to modify some of the sizes at the end.

Re: Tools organiser and Workbench with extra storage

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @mb_580. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your workbench project.

That came out sensational! Were you following any plans or just making it up as you went along? Either way, it looks really robust. What did you use for the benchtop?

 

Our members always love an excellent workbench project, and I trust yours will inspire many of them to give it a go themselves.

 

Great work.

Mitchell

Re: Tools organiser and Workbench with extra storage

Thanks Mitchell, 

The whole idea started when I saw Simple D.I.Y. workbench by @Baggs. I've to adjust some sizing to be able to use the old storage cabinet under the bench, which was my Christmas gift from my boys ;-).

 

I've used MDF for benchtop and the rest of the structure is 700x350mm treated pine.

I will try to find the drawing plan and share it to community.

Hi MB.

 

Great workbench! And I'm glad you have a chair for your wife? :smile:

May I ask about your Worx Pegasus seen above?

Good value?

Re: Tools organiser and Workbench with extra storage

Thanks Noyade,

this is my first real project using Worx Pegasus. It works fine for me. Having said that you might need extra clamps to increase the performance and speed.

I’ve also watched a video on YouTube to find out the right way to use Workbench for all wood project.

hope this helps.

Hi @mb_580 

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community!

Incredible job on your workbench and I must say it features the Christmas cabinet from your boys perfectly. 

 

I am so pleased to read you found inspiration from member @Baggs project and I agree with @MitchellMc, I am sure there will be many members inspired by yours.  

 

I would love to know what type of lighting you used and how you attached it? 

 

Katie

Re: Tools organiser and Workbench with extra storage

Hi Katie,

glad to hear that, i will be more happier when i hear someone is saying that he was inspired by this project.

I’ve tried to use all the things that my wife was about to thought them away in this project as you can see the stools and the storage under neath. Lights are the same story, i had these lights for few years and was installed under my kitchen cabinet. We have to replace them with LED lights and they should be ended up in to the bin, but instead i keep them for this project.

@mb_580,

 

I'm intrigued by the fluorescent light connections, but then I don't get around much. There's a 3-pin plug protruding from each frame? Specifically designed for cabinets?
