    Just moved into my new house and finally have garage space, I want to build my own work bench. Does anyone have suggestions, plans, how-to, or anything else? I want something for the back wall of my garage, with upper and lower storage, with a table top like surface to work on. Only major table top tool I have now is a vise, but will likely get a bench grinder soon.

    I assume that I should attach it to the wall. I also may integrate my beer fridge into the work bench.

    I also found these rolling pull out drawers for the bottom that look handy - http://www.familyhandyman.com/video/device/mobile/t/57560570/modular-workbench.htm?m_n=true#.UYb6hZX4Pr5

    I built this exact workbench a few months ago. I didnt do the table saw stand or the pull out drawers. Just the basic bench with a spot for the miter saw. Awesome and simple to build.

    The slide out drawers on the bottom look nice. That might be my next project.
