10 years ago we moved into the Little John house, and there was a workbench in the garage. The top was made of particle board which had begun to deteriorate over the last few years. So for labor day, I cleaned everything up, organized the 10 years of junk that had accumulated, and bought a $34 sheet of plywood and replaced the top. Quite nice if I do say so myself. note to self: don’t ever build anything with particle board.
