A Workbench From Scrap Wood

There’s something gratifying about rescuing an item from the landfill and giving it new life. I have done this several times, like here and here, and here . All were fun projects to make.

But, I have to say I’m especially proud of myself for using most of my scrap wood to create order in my garage. For months, the garage was in dire need of storage; tools and wood were scattered ,and containers of paint were hidden underneath piles of stuff. Each project took longer than it should have because finding things was not an easy task.

For this project I repurposed two pallets and a piece of plywood I used for my sub flooring in the living room.

The workbench is big enough to hold my tools and the few pieces of wood. I also used an old bookshelf for storing leftover paint. The only thing this project cost me was my time (and sweat and maybe some blood).These tools were bought at estate sales. They cost between 50 cents and $2 but are in perfect working condition. Oh, how much I love them!

A reminder of our pre-Nashville life.
