Idea Shop 6, Paycheck 19: Flip Your Top
With this paycheck, purchase the lumber and hardware for building an innovative flip-top bench. The plan is free here. As your tool collection grows, simply rotate the top and bolt new acquisitions to the opposite face. Or leave one side empty to use as a worksurface. A length of black pipe sandwiched between the benchtops serves as a pivot. Cutoff bolts inserted through each end secure the benchtop for work. Casters allow you to move the bench as needed to feed stock into tools. The planer shown in the photo will be purchased down the road after saving a few more dollars. So of course, if you have a few bucks left over after buying bench materials, stash them in your bank.
Idea Shop will continue to grow with Paycheck 20 in just a couple of weeks.
