Well, it has been a while since I posted any update on my workbench build progress, but it has been in the high 90s with heat indexes in the 105+ range…so working in a non-climate controled garage shop was tough. I had to work in short bursts and that made for slow going in a one man shop. Anyway, I now have the base of my new workbench complete and I’m now building the top. The first pic shows the primary base construction.
This second pic shows the same base with a few extra ribs added in to give the top a little extra support in a tosion box type way.
This is a glue and screws construction…not as elegant as mortice and tenon construction but it is sturdy and it will be a good bench t do my kind of projects on. Hopefully the next blog post will show the completed bench with the top installed.
