Default work bench.

With the advent of a roof on the north side of my shop I am able to move some things that have been packed away out.

This work bench was made for my great grandfather when he retired from the utility company. All gas welded 1" heavy pipe. It also comes apart.

My dad got it after my great grandfather passed, then I got it when I moved out. Now it is being set back up for my son.

Hopefully it will see several more generations.
