    Cheap is good and in this case beautiful!

    This brings back memories of my building a work bench out of a used tool frame. Like you I had to cut a lot of stuff up and weld it back together. I really wish I had taken photos of the process back then. It is funny how the frame just gets heavier and harder to roll over every time you weld something to it.

    One thing I've learned the hard way though was that you need to think about old age and how you will move things in the future. I'm trying to make a point to either use wheels or build in provisions for pallet jack or fork lift.

    This build of yours is so well done I was about ready to ask where you got those nice drawers from. A couple of minutes further into the video and I should have known better, beautifully home made.

    All I can say is nice work, you have something to be proud of.
