DIY Mechanic’s Creeper

Unless you’ve got a pit in your garage, a hydraulic lift, or perhaps a lifted truck, you’ve probably got a mechanic’s creeper for getting underneath your car. But if you’re in the market for a new one and you’re not afraid of a bit of DIY and sawdust, making your own creeper could be a fun little half-day project.

One of our favorite YouTubers, Bob Clagett over at I Like to Make Stuff, walks us through the very simple process of making our very own mechanic’s creeper—complete with tool caddies and flex-lights—using mostly scrap wood and a few other items. Nice!
