Edsal electronics workbench

Electronics workbench

(Source: Edsal)

A kitchen table, a board on top of two pillars of milk crates. What do you use as a workbench? Do you even use a workbench for a workbench?

You're going to need a sweet work surface anyway so that your $3k robot has something to breakdance across when you demand that Turkish coffee.

Consider this bench by Edsal for about $850. This thing has got cabinets, it's got drawers and it has a provision for a rod to keep all of your spools of hook-up wire right in front of you, yet out of your way. It is made of steel and also has one of those super thick, super heavy duty butcher block tops. This guy isn't going to wobble on you, even when your robot minion comes over and kicks it—when it eventually rebels against you and declares its independence.
