Folding Workbench with Storage

Submitted by lookitsash on Fri, 08/19/2016 - 13:15

Digging through my scrap wood collection, I came across some pieces of pegboard from our previous home that I had forgotten about. I had just relocated a lot of garden tools to the shed, and there was an empty wall in the garage that would now be perfect for the pegboard. After mounting the pegboard and hanging up some tools, the wall still looked a little empty. I had a vision of mounting a heavy duty folding workbench to the wall. This was the perfect location, and if the workbench folded, we could still fit the car in the garage.  You can read all the details about my folding workbench on my blog at:

The workbench is a perfect addition to my garage, and its used every day.  Best of all, I just fold it down when I need to park the car!
