Before starting a new project my Dad would always say, "Time to Tool Up!" - his way announcing the process of obtaining and organizing the materials needed for the project.
A quarter of the way into building my Retro Arcade (A.K.A. Ready Player One) I realized I was a little in over my head. I wasn't "tooled up". I needed a table. No. A proper workbench.
This was an opportunity start more than just the workbench.
It was the beginning of my Maker Space.
