05-20-2018 01:39 PM by oldguy2 | 1 comment »

Hi again. Lets learn from the past and mistakes. Image number one is the current improved workbench, with probably features I think I like. such as. size 48×28, maple top 1.5 thick, vise, casters on base, shelves. and should have one or two more features. image 2 was the bench I had for years, it was great..oops..tool well deep enough for a screw driver, sturdy two people could stand on it, size 52×29…I resized it to make Adirondack chairs and a 3 inch board ...
