This butcherblock table top is something I purchase when I was in high school to be flat and sturdy. Today I have added a back to keep things from falling off and some magnetic strips to attach tools that used to be on another wall using pegboard. The magnetic strips helps me keep the tools handy and off the table surface. I have trouble keeping the table top workspace cleared. The power switches are on the far right and my old DeWalt corded drill is hung plugged into a power outlet ready to use. The magnifier on the left is handy for close up work. At some point I will hang an LED light to improve the lighting.
Not included in the picture is a family inherited set of storage drawers which I also use to stack some not in use tools.
