Definition of insanity: Building two workbenches simultaneously, in a non climate controlled garage, during the summer, in Georgia. Had a good time building these but I think I will be thirsty forever.
The large bench is 2’ by 8’, with a 5” thick top; the small bench is 18” by 4’, with a 4” thick top. Both are made from southern yellow pine. I started by picking through the 2×12’s at the local lumber yard, they were very patient with me. I let these dry for several weeks in the garage before starting to rip them down to width. I then stickered all the boards and waited a few more weeks before jointing and laminating.
I selected the best boards from my stock to laminate the tops and avoid any knots on the surface. The next selection was for the legs, what was left made the rails.
Finish is just a simple Danish Oil.
On to the next project.
