I decided it was time to build a real workbench for the shop, after reviewing numerous benches on here and in magazines I took several features from numerous benches and came up with this design. The top is made from cherry and black walnut, it is 2 inches thick and held together with glue and threaded rod. Base is just kiln dried 2x material from a local bigdox, the drawer box is 3/4 mdf wrapped in Brazilian Teak, the drawers are made from poplar and brazilian teak and ar 24”x18” x3” in size. The whole bench was coated with boiled linseed oil, then a coat of amber shellac was applied to the base with the teak receiving a few coats of hand rubbed poly, The top was finished with a generous amount of furniture wax. This benc will also serve as an outfeed table for my table saw. total size is 6’ x 30” x 34”, I ask for honest crizticism and cretiques and as always thanks for looking. I would also like to thank Greg3G for his patience and help with this bench I am sure i owe him a new phone by now.
