New work bench idea


Recommended Posts

O,K so here it is.. i took a old pick up tail gate.. made a couple brackets for the bottom to pivot on kinda like what would have been on the truck but with some flat plate so it could be anchored to a wall. Then a couple brackets to attach the arms to mount to. Now when i want a bench i just fold down the tailgate for a easy bench.. when i am done i just "close" the tailgate.. Its against the wall and out of the way...

You might take a look at Jack Olsen's benches that were featured in a past issue of Popular Mechanics and Car craft. He uses the same folding bench idea.
