What’s the outdoor workbench? Well, not stating the obvious, it would be an all weather workbench. I don’t have room in my shop for a full length workbench, so I thought about making one from Trex brand decking materials. In theory it should work. If I am correct, Trex decking materials can be machined just like wood, although I would not run it through my planer. When I say all weather please understand that the bench would be placed on a covered porch out of the rain and snow. It would be constructed in a traditional style with all the features of a fully functional woodworking bench. I have yet to calculate the cost of said material, that won’t happen until a design is settled on. So what do you think? Can it be done? Would be the right material? I appreciate your input.
