EDIT: This thread is now the Virtual Man Shed - for virtual men to engage in discussion of tools (Reep! ha!), camping, building things and so on. Note the old camping thread here: http://www.limboclub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=71745 *** So I was setting up the workbench in our new house today. Manly stuff. This thing is made of ancient hardwood railway sleepers. The ones they ripped out of outback train lines and shipped into cities for garden edging and the like about a decade ago. It is heavy as fuck, not quite square in any dimension and one rail is getting a big split in it so each time it is disassembled and reassembled it requires the skill of a Rubik's Cube Master to line up the (bent) brackets with screw holes. I don't have that skill so I just drill new holes, use bigger screws each time and add new brackets wherever they fit. In short, love the bench but it is a bitch to move. I'll post a photo when I'm done. The new house has Foxtel and I saw a segment on building a good workshop on the How To channel. I will be getting to work on that in the next few months as time allows. What's your workbench like? What's your home workshop/man-shed like? What cool or new jobs have you been working on lately? What's the best workshop you've seen? The best I've seen is my father's - It's not flash, but it does have a mezzanine level, about $40,000 worth of tools gathered over a lifetime and a restored first generation Chrysler New Yorker sitting in the middle of it. Think Clint's garage in Gran Torino and add a storey to it. So yeah, it is flash. Share.
