Last weekend, we got our garage organized. Today we’re working on our garage workbench.
Let’s face it, we aren’t carpenters. So we have to keep things basic when building. That’s why we chose the 2×4 Basics system. It can be found at places like Amazon. Or, directly on the 2x4basics.com site.
What’s so great about this? It allows for 90 degree cuts only. Not miters or angles. We just have basic tools around here, so that is super helpful to us! And, it’s customizable, according to your space.
It is essentially a plastic system that allows you to just add 2×4’s and plywood. The sturdy 2×4 framing make this kit strong. Each shelf will hold up to 1,000 pounds.
Oh, and I was not given this product, asked to review it or compensated in any way.
What are some of the possible configurations? Here are some photos submitted to their website by actual users.
I like the idea of having shelves and a workbench that we can take with us, should we move. At our last home, it was all built-in. So, it’s a better investment. Anything that has to be left with the house is money lost.
Below is the start of our new workbench.
I’ll show you how ours turned out once we’re all done! They say it can be done in an hour. We’re going on our third hour soon (by “we” I mean mostly Chris), but it probably could be done faster. We just hate to have a wrong cut and have to get more wood.
Have you built your own workbench? Do you try to avoid angle cuts? Or, is this all too simple for you? Are we just wimps? I love anything that makes a job easier!
