Show off your workshop!

Haha, I love this. No way does Tucker even know how to open a can of paint. But his work bench does look a bit more rustic than most who try to sell you on their dream.

Boing Boing should do a show me your workbench bit. Here’s mine…

Great idea!

Any happy mutants agree there should be a dedicated “Workbench” bbs thread? Upload a picture maybe?

Anyone know of such a thread?

My main tool storage for your amusement. I have another 2 big plastic bins in our storage locker, one for electrical crap and another for woodwork and locksmithing. My wife doesn’t complain about my bits and bobs because things actually get fixed.

and as more stuff gets added, shop looks more used (because, unlike Fucker Swanson, it is used… for WORK)

I was thinking of the magazine, though I’m guessing that it was named (at least in part) after Duchamp’s readymade.
