Work Bench

My First wood project.
After purchasing a bunch of tools at a Black Friday sale I decided I need somewhere to store them. After scouring the internet for inexpensive tool storage solutions, and finding none. I started toying round with the idea of finding a work bench. I soon discovered that work benches are rather expensive. So I came up with my own solution.
This is my work bench. Since I have limited knowledge of wood working I decided the best thing to do was to make this bench versatile. on either end of the work surface I put two expansion slots; the idea is that I can attach things to the work surface using these slots. (Miter Saw, vises, frames...) they are also used to access outlet that I have installed on the under side of the work surface. To increase storage capacity and convenience, I installed a set of sliding shelves (for larger tools) and to front of the shelves I put a small storage for screwdrivers. (since taking this picture I've installed magnetic strips to the mount the screwdrivers. the door is designed so that; if the latch is closed it will open to the sliding shelves; if the latch is open it will open to the screwdrivers.
