I’m going to call this my official first project. I’ve built some other things in the past but I actually made plans for this one!

We moved into a new house in Sept., and it has an awesome 2 car garage. Ive been tasked with building what I’m told is an entry table (but it’s more like a tall side table with a cabinet). In order to do that I need an actual work bench/table, so this is the result.

It’s certainly not the prettiest workbench, but it’s very solid and definitely gets the job done.

Sounds like it meets all of the requirements for a workbench to me. Well done!

IMHO, it’s not supposed to be pretty. It’s supposed to work.

Looks like it’ll work just fine.

Nice job!

Well made workbench. Great work!
Solid, strong and heavy workbench is a must when we do a lot of handplaning.

As you say “gets the job done” is what really matters.

Looks good from here! Now,before you start that Entry Table, I’m sure there is a new tool that you can convince your wife that you need to get the job done right. Works for me! LOL…...but I think she’s beginning to get wise to me now.

Nice bench. You made the right start. The better your setup for working the better your projects will be.

This is the kind of shop table I like to see, quick and dirty. I’ve never understood these ornate workbenches made of curly maple with hand-cut dovetails. All of my shop stands/tables are butt ugly and functional. I guess I would rather spend my time making actual projects pretty rather than spending time making my workbenches look good.

I thought it was the frame of one of my benches for a second.

Have your say...
