10-foot workbench with tons of storage

I love ryobi tools, and I have amassed quite a collection, but they were basically piling up on an old tool cart. There had to be a better way. So I started designing a workbench with shelves beneath, and pegboard and french cleats above for storing tools. It also had to be strong enough to hold a large vise. What makes the whole workbench so strong and stable is the uprights going up the wall behind the cleats and pegboard each have six screws going all the way through to the studs. That and the fact that all the pieces were custom cut to account for slope in the garage, which means that all the weight goes straight to the floor, making it extremely stable. RYOBI NATION ROCKS!
