I gawked and gawker over this workbench at Home Depot for over 4 months. I just couldn't bring myself to purchase it because I already had a table. In January, I finally purchased it! The table is more solid and sturdy than the former table, and much easier to clean the surface. The 2 drawers sold me where I have more storage to store pens, pencils, scissors and special brushes. And best of all, the height is adjustable - I can raise it if I need to stand when I roll slabs of clay and it can be lowered when I need to sit while adding handles and knobs. Such a big improvement over the former table I had, saves my achy back, too. So silly for me to have waited so long! And it just fits in the space!
Back in early December, I purchased a few new shelving units to have additional storage around my wheel as I work. The left side has cubbies for things like throwing pats, plaster blocks for clay drying, sponges and hand towels. And the right side has a unit with 5 drawers so I can store tools, utensils, textured mats and all my cookie cutters and letters.
