I think when you’ve grown up on a 40 acre farm, the farmland never leaves you.
While I kinda live in the middle of a countrified suburbia, if I pull all my tools outdoors and face my favourite view, I’m back on that farmland again, listening to Dad clamouring away in the barn, with the snap of the air dried laundry sailing overtop my mom’s amazingly abundant prize winning garden.
I adore the outdoors! With the warm wind on my face and the sun warming up my arms, I was more than ready to get my fix of vitamin D.
So when I landed this amazing portable workbench / worktable at a local thrift not long ago, I gasped! I knew exactly where I desired to use this. Right in my own back yard.
I’ve been woodworking outdoors here and there already, but always lugging around heavy workhorses and full sized boards for a table top. This is better.
Here’s a peek at how it works in case you feel inclined to make one yourself.
All three sets of legs collapse into the inside of the table via various hinges.
One side tucks in first…
… then the centre legs collapse against the first…
… fit the other legs inside their section, close the latches…
Isn’t it fabulous?! No new dress for me, just gimme a new old carpenter’s workbench!
Ohhh… and I made a matching new toy to go with it…
I whipped up this wooden toolbox, expecting to bring it to the Milner Village Garden Party event to possibly sell… (it’s about time, right?)
Being the extreme multi purposer that is embedded in me, I plunked in some nearby mason jars, loaded them up with my favourite screws and tools before it was even really complete, and now I think I have to keep it!
More on the toolbox another time. Today was the workbench’s turn and I’d hate to make it jealous…
