Time To Rethink Public Work Station?


Yesterday while taking a short physical-distanced stroll I noticed the above-pictured work station near Montreal’s Atwater Market. I was truly struck by the sense of such an installment for public use.

It has a raised part to save your back while working. It also has several handy basic tools on chains to secure they remain in place. Screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, and various Allen keys hang on one side ready to help out.

But one thing has me stymied. When you leave IKEA with your not-yet-assembled bookcase, desk, or wall unit it is neatly packed and fits in most cars easily. But once you stop at this public  IKEA assembly station, and put the item together, there is a very real possibility it will no longer fit in your trunk.

Good idea, but perhaps a little more thought should have gone into it.
