3 DIY Christmas Trees

A sheet metal workbench cover is one of the wisest investments you can make. It’s easy to clean (just squeegee the oil into the gutter and drain bucket), and it’s heavy duty enough to handle heavy car parts. All it takes is some measuring and sketching and a trip to a sheet metal shop or a local HVAC shop and steel yard. The whole thing assembles in less than an hour and costs less than $300. Skip the steel decking if you wish, but it does prevent the top from denting and provides a more solid work surface. I paid $180 for the top and $92 for the 11-gauge (1/8-inch)...
