Workshop

I think I've about finished up my workshop for at least the short-term future(Still need to add some little sorting drawers for small ECE parts though). It's made from an Ikea storage shelving system(Cheaper and better material than buying the raw parts separately from a home improvement store). I made some simple mitered angles to attach it to the banister, so it's sturdy and extended the main table using a couple of old bed slats as legs(Cut a groove down the middle to snap them into the metal part of the shelf). Also added some pegs to the sides to hold stuff like wire, found a simple way of doing it by just taking a dowel and rotating a circular Dremel sanding bit over one end till it was thin enough to be hammered in.
