My friend and I are planning on making a couple different workbenches. I want a “real” woodworking bench, he wants a “regular” bench.
We started with his.
The top is made from the Ash studs I pulled out of my Grandpa’s place.
The base is some southern yellow pine that my friend picked up.
It took us way too much to build it, but we had fun. Those old studs are hard, twisted, warped, bowed, and have nails in them. Gave the jointer and planer a good work out.
The base attached to the top with lags and bolts so that it can be taken apart for transportation later.
