DIY work stand (with photos this time!)

(Apparently I was doing the images wrong - hopefully this works!)

I've seen a few pretty fancy home made work stands in this forum (see viewtopic.php?f=34&t=45395 ), so I thought I should share my not-so-fancy new stand built from my old bass speaker box and broken car bike rack:

Nice idea, handy platform for putting tools on while you work and storage underneath as well.

Weight distribution is pretty good as the bike is close to the box. It was a very heavy speaker box - glad I'm not lugging that around anymore!
