« Part 3: Bench on cabnits Part 4 of Torsion box work bench series no next part

Well all finished just have to add a few more coats of poly to the mdf I do about 6-8 on the mdf for the extra protection.

Anyways here are a few pictures of it completed, i’ll try and get some pics of where it’s new home will be.

The sides are walnut lot’s of sap wood, entire boards of it first time using wood like this, red oak doors and drawers.

Wish I was getting it. I like it. In the spring I am going to try to make a torsion box assembly table/ out feed table.

damn nice bench

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Nice bench. Are you going to move it out from the wall a bit so you could work all around it?

Thanks for all the nice comments and keep them coming….lol

The bench is designed to be against a wall, the customer has peg board on the wall behind the bench so it was built so he could lean over to grab what ever he needs. But now he’s talking about moving it away from the wall to walk around it, that means I have to build some panels for the back side as it’s just exposed plywood there.

Our dog is a mastiff a small one about 90lbs but talk about personality and so strong. He thinks he’s a person and kinda treat him as one, we love him!
