    I have been organizing my garage and just bought one of these: https://www.walmart.com/ip/47702077

    Decent quality and cheap AF but be advised it took like 3 hours to assemble.

    ^ That's cheaper than what my workbench cost to build. And it would be perfect for a smaller space like a 1 car garage. Especially if you're only using it for bike repairs.

    Quick question (I checked the link but couldn't tell): Any way to mount a vice on that Walmart bench?

    Show me your tool wall!
    Kristofer Henry of 44 Bikes not only builds some awesome bikes, but his garage build thread on Garage Journal (linked in my previous post) is impressive.

    I may have some free peg board to give away, painted black. Keep an eye out on the pay it forward thread.

    Teamsloan, I love the grinder idea. I saw one that swings down under the bench on Pinterest but I think yours is very cool. I haven't decided what to do.

    You can definitely get good ideas on Pinterest.

    Harbor Freight sells the receiver tube without it being attached to any sort of hitch. So, I have that built in to my bench. Harbor Freight also sells a vice mount for a 2" receiver. Buy a few of those and you can mount just about anything to them. The result is a rock solid mount for a variety of tools.

    I've loved having this tool box, and it does double duty as a small workbench. Harbor Freight's boxes get consistently stellar reviews when compared to higher end brands. Although, I have now upgraded and changed my tool organization to a custom built workbench with built in receiver hitch that allows me to swap out a bench grinder or bench vise. This saves space as I can put the grinder or vise out of the way when not needed. Behind the workbench will be my wall of pegboard. Most of my tools will be on the wall and the tool box will become parts storage and a refuge for odd collections of hardware (I never throw away hardware as long as it's not stripped out). ...And yes, that's a sink with hot/cold water and an AC unit in the wall

    Dude are you a prepper? You could live back there with a microwave. Seriously though, that hitch mounted stuff is B.A.M.W.A. approved! Can't wait to see you rolling around with a bench grinder on the back of your car, tbh.

    I have one of these: Milwaukee 46 in. 16-Drawer Tool Chest and Rolling Cabinet Set

    I use these for my sockets instead of the bands: Hansen Socket Organizer Set

    I have a smaller toolbox I will load tools into when I go off-roading because the Milwaukee box is quite large.

    I work on my all my vehicles (cars, motorcycle, bikes) so I just keep commonly used tools on the pegboard. Nothing in particular. I know where everything's home is in the toolbox. I prefer it that way when compared to a carefully organized tool wall that I have to totally re-do when I buy a new tool. Just my preference.

    And yeah, the Milwaukee box is actually the shit and it was totally worth the price.

    I was able to co-opt the area behind a door to hang 3 bikes. These things rock:
