So it's safe to say that they had plenty of experience in taking care of babies.

David was struck with a creative idea when he was buying baby furniture for the newborn twins...

He works full-time as a mechanic, and instead of splashing out on some brand-new expensive baby changing furniture, he decided to buy a $200 Husky Tool Cart.

He completely transformed the tool cart...

Displaying his handiwork on his business Facebook account, he added a metal side shelf, wire baskets for storing nappies and other essentials, then some foam pipe insulation around the top’s metal lip so his twin babies wouldn’t be scratched by the cart while being changed.

He even built in LED lights for night-time changes...

And once the twins are old enough not to need changing, the station can be repurposed as a tool trolley for David’s workplace, MotorCity Mechanic.

This means that no money was wasted!

But David explained how his wife wasn't always so keen on the idea.

David has mixed his job with his family life...

In an article for CafeMom, David said, "Why a tool cart? My day job for the last twenty-five years has been a mechanic. My other job is being an automotive Youtuber making videos about the cars I worked on all day." "So, my life is 24/7 cars, cars, and more cars. Eventually, it spills over into my family life."

He did, of course, test the waters beforehand...

"Fortunately for me, my loving wife and kids fully understand and have accommodated me and my all things automotive lifestyle," he explained. "For that reason I truly am blessed. After testing the waters with a picture of one I found online and getting shot down before I could get the words out, I knew I needed to tread softly and go with another tactic: delay."

David is officially a genius.

"After its job of helping to keep babies’ nether regions spick and span is complete its new calling would be the garage to help out with making more videos and fixing more cars," David explained.
