As I previously mentioned, I’ve made good progress on a garage workbench. I still need to put the facings (or whatever you call them) on the drawers. The facings are already cut out, but I’m waiting to decide on drawer pulls before I put them on. I’ve considered making some drawer pulls from rope to give the whole thing a different look than standard cabinet drawers. The back edge of the benchtop has some scrap MDF pieces laying on it to keep anything from rolling back behind the bench. Those will be replaced with a long piece of pine or maybe just some quarter round trim. I also hope to install a vise under the long overhang that I designed into the right end of the bench.
I’ve also made some really good progress on a basic router table. The top is a layer of 3/4” melamine laying on top of a layer of 3/4” MDF. I put some lengths of T-track in that I will use to attach the fence, which is the one thing left to complete. I built the stand using some 2×4s I had on hand. It’s currently sitting on some scrap 2.4 chunks just to keep the garage floor moisture from soaking up into the legs. I plan to install some casters to make it mobile in my small garage shop.
