    • This looks great! I love the design you used on the sides! Great angles!

    • Wow! That looks like it came from a high end furniture store. The style stain, and fabric give it a great look.

    • Awesome setup. Nice to have the option to roll the workbench outdoors! Smart!

    • I really love the idea to put the pegboard on the side of the workbench, very versatile and portable. Have you thought about putting a shelf under the table saw for more storage?
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 2, 2018
      • Hey, thanks. I have thought about adding shelves below, but the Saw fits underneath with the slightest gap for room, and the stand actually slides in the back. So not much room for addtional shelves under there. Thanks for the thought though. I will apply that on the next workbench if I decide to upgrade.
        By bchaffin15, on March 2, 2018
      • Sorry I didn't see that you said table saw. I understand now. There is actually a cut out below the table saw so the dust can fall through into a bag that attaches underneath.
        By bchaffin15, on March 3, 2018
      • Yeah, I was thinking with a single piece of MDF, you would get a little more storage, but the dust cut out is a really good idea, I haven't seen that before.

    • Looks so nice! Is that once piece of wood or several put together?
      By RYOBI NATION, on March 21, 2018
      • Thanks. It's 2- 1x's pocket holed together, with some 1x trim pieces on the outside.

    • We are glad to see the plans from Shanty 2 Chic came in handy! It turned out really great! Do you mind expanding on how you bend your own metal??
      By RYOBI NATION, on April 4, 2018
      • No problem. I tried two ways and both worked well. 

        1. Using flat bar aluminum. I cut it to size and then measure where I want the angles to be. I used my drill press to drill holes in it before bending. Then I use my bench vise to hold it in place to hammer it to a 90-degree angle. ***depending on the thickness I use a little blow torch to heat the metal just at the angle.

        2. Instead of buying flat bar aluminum, just by the lumber ties in the lumber section of Home Depot. They are usually thinner, have multiple sizes, and have the holes pre-drilled. Cut it to size and repeat the steps above but without the torch.

        ***Be sure to sand down the edges of the cut aluminum and metal. Don’t want to put rough metal on a spot people will run their hands over. I use my Ryobi bench belt sander, but you can knock down the rough sports with an orbital sander as well.
