A friend of Walt's, who is head of maintenance for a regional hospital, asked the woodworker whether he could use a hospital bed. "I thought, 'Is he kidding?' " Walt says. Then he saw the bed and realized that it could be one of the most useful pieces of equipment in his shop. With the bed frame cut off and a butcher-block top added, Walt turned it into an all-purpose table. The top raises and lowers electrically via the foot pedals. When it's collapsed, Walt can store it conveniently.

The horizontal layout of Walt's sandpaper holder maximizes space and organization. Hook-and-loop sanding discs stand on edge within the compartments, separated by hardboard dividers that slide neatly and snugly into dadoes on the top and bottom shelves. Self-adhesive rolls store on the long dowel. Abrasives for Walt's detail sander stack on vertical dowels.
