    Separate locker for that. Been upgraded to a 3 cu/ft glass front "apartment" fridge. More cold C.A.B/'s for the shop denizens calling themselves the Car Munglers.

    It's no "garage mahal" but at least now (for a while) I can find what I need when I need it.

    That is a *great* looking work area. What's the pad on the floor in front of the work bench?

    I have them also and they are awesome! (inexpensive also) Not just anti-fatigue but much much nicer in winter.

    I see JP already posted what they are and he's correct. They are 25" x 25" interlocking compressed foam squares. They come in package of four so I only needed 1 package for the front of my work bench. They make standing for long periods on concrete much easier.

    You'd better drill air holes in it for him and make sure he doesn't bring Basil with him.
