Hey there friends! Just a friendly reminder… this Friday is tax day. Hope you have your taxes done and that you’re getting a big refund to spend on DIY projects!
Folding Workbench Question
Last week I received a message from a reader about the DIY Folding Workbench. Donnie asks “I’d like to be able to secure/lock the leg portion into the table top so it is all held tight if stood up against a wall. Any ideas?”
First, thank you for the question. I love when you guys get involved! I’ve actually been thinking about a way to do this and this is what I came up with. My idea is to drill a hole on each side of the table, through the apron and the leg, then secure the top to the leg with a bolt and wing nut. This way it could still be easily folded when not in use and the legs would be secure when in use. What do you think? Do you have any ideas to secure the legs of the DIY Folding Workbench? Post your ideas in the comments below.
Last week I shared new plans for the DIY Ballard Designs Knockoff Chalkboard Shelf. The original retails for $159, but using the free plans, you can knock it off at a fraction of the cost! I’m so excited because the shelf was featured on Knock Off Decor! You can see the DIY Ballard Designs Knockoff Chalkboard Shelf on Knock Off Decor here.
I have more printed plans for you! It’s time to start thinking about gardening, so this week I’m sharing the printed plans for the Raised Garden Beds. You can download a pdf of the Raised Garden Beds here.
Thanks for stopping by. If all goes well this week I should have new plans to share with you next time! Have a good week. We’ll catch up next Tues-DIY.
