Well, this is my version of a workbench. I have spent a few years using a ‘get by with’ workbench. During that period I have developed my style of working so I built the bench to fit me. It is 74 1/2” long, 33” wide, and 36 1/2” high.
The pedestal is made from SYP and the joinery is mortice and tenon. The top is made from two layers of 3/4” MDF with a topping of 1/4” tempered board. It is wrapped with SYP. The tempered board is removable so it can be replaced when necessary. The lower shelf is 3/4” MDF topped with 1/4” tempered board.
One vice is from Lee Valley and the other (tail vice) is from the old work bench.
Probable cost is around $200.00.
As I said I built it for me and have been using it and it is working out great.
Thanks for Looking.
