Today I saw kleebro's Work Table/Workbench project and I saw that his design utilized something similar to a change I made to mine a couple of months ago. I decided that I needed to post an update to my original workbench.
Initially I was going to replace the bench with an entirely new one with the clamping options I wanted to add; but my old bench was still rock solid and so I decided on a new top only. First I removed the trim and squared the original top using my tracksaw. Then I added a layer of 3/4 MDF over my original top and recessed T-Track into the new oak trim/borders.
It’s like getting a new bench with a nice flat top and new clamping options as well.
Thanks for the mention kleebro and for reminding me to post this update!
And thanks for looking. Your comments are always welcome!
