One of the neighbors recently built something like that and it works very well for him. He has a divided 3 car garage and put this in the single car side. When he folds it up he can get his pickup in just fine.

I like the trussing on this. I'd put shelves above it to hold all the stuff I usually wind up leaving strewn all over my bench.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I used a similar design when I built a fold-down out feed table for my table saw. It's 30" X 60" so it takes up a bunch of room when deployed, but stows neatly against the back of the saw when not needed.

I'll burn that bridge when I come to it

Well this is interesting guys . I’ve never seen this setup with the magnet screw holder bit before ? I wonder if it works well, as I always have a hard time screwing . Not that I do it as often as I used to now that I have an air nailer

While you are at it, Tom, you could build a fold up ladder to get to the upper cabinet.
Just saying,

I have always used magnetic screw holder bits, like the drywall guys use.

As a matter of fact, in my shop, I have a shelf for long frame stock that requires a two step ladder to reach. Can't have wasted vertical space in a shop, can you?

It is an interesting concept, the magnet is alot stronger than the normal bit holder, looks like.
