Constructing a Folding Workbench with Storage

From the blogger: "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."

I wish I had these instructions years ago when we lived in some smaller homes! This is perfect. I love how you explain so well how to make this into a folding table.. Very well done. Having a work bench is just one of the most useful items to have in one's home, garage or even basement. I could have used this in our last garage where space was at such a premium.
