Randy Sarafan made this work table geared towards making DIY projects and documenting them:

I set out to make a simple work table for my home studio so that I could have a surface upon which to work and document projects. I tried to keep the design as simple as possible as I only have a limited arsenal of power tools, a small vehicle for transporting materials and little patience for woodworking.

This design proved to be successful in accounting for all of these requirements.

    That is a fabulous little worktable. It’s a simple design and looks to be easy to build. I like how you incorporated it to fit in a specific space and utilized the area around the table with bins to hold misc items and materials for you DIY projects.
