Slack Sign Up link -> channel OpenBench

.Future Work

.Storage For Ongoing Projects

Likely just going to be shelving or cupboards in the middle of the workbench upper back.

.Monitors/TVs

Used for easy access to datasheets, 3D CAD, controlling the 3D Printer/CNC etc.

.Adjustable Workbench Facing Camera

Probably have the bottom shelf have a sliding bar for the camera to travel along. Goal is to have an easy way to do tutorials that require showing work that is being done.

.CNC/3D Printer/Laser Etcher/Pick and Place/etc

the bottom shelf of the workbench will be dedicated to a 3D robotic assistant. Top shelf for me, bottom shelf for robotic assistant. This likely will start out as a CNC and progress into the other options as time allows.

.Mats to cover workbench surface

It would be nice to have an ESD mat as well as something similar to a whiteboard to draw on that pairs with the bench facing camera.

.Power Strips of programmable voltages for rapid electronics prototyping

The goal of this is to provide a couple different options to plug into for DC power as well as several AC outlets to keep everything neat.

.6/1/17 - starting to add components

Slowly have been adding new features to the workbench. I'm not sure how I feel about the current setup quite yet, but I'm sure it will get perfected over time! I know my dog likes his new hang out ;)

.12/11 /16 - Functional Workbench

Managed to finally get the Workbench together and to a point that I can use it. :) The back is on the top at this point, but I still need to add the lower back so the bottom shelf can't have things fall off the back. Next Steps are to add shelving and start upgrading the workbench!
