    I don't work on bikes anymore

    That's what, all my bikes either run or I don't care that they don't. So here's what I do to get my fab on;

    Remember my bench? Never totally finished it.



    Needs backsplash/pegboard so, 1 1/2" X 3/4" 14 GA rect tubing



    Hillbilly surface plate






    At this point we skip ahead. You will have to believe without pictures that the framework got welded toghether, powdercoated red, then mounted to the wall.



    Will make the reveal larger next time.



    Pegboard is just masonite(?). Took it to my brother had him spray it with a automotive primer/sealer, urethane topcoat. It's shiny.



    The bench top is maple. To fill the gap between the top and the pegboard we are going to make a solid maple backsplash.



    Dependent on a wood working buddy for that.

    I'd be afraid to get it dirty, but it looks great!

    'bout done;

    I'm sure the pegboard will be an ever-changing evolution. Not many of my tools live at my house full time.



    Buddy helped with the backsplash. Resawed that 1"x8" maple board lengthways then veneered to regular 2"x8".



    Finished with a Varathane oil product. Still needs rubbed out.


    Makes kind of a nice little homeowner tool nook. Now I can get back to bikes.

    A shop that's too clean is a sign of a sick mind...
