This is the first project I can recall making that was not out of necessity. The top is made from a reclaimed beam that was 3-1/2×12 and roughly 18 feet long. It had bereclaimeden sitting out on the weather for some time and looked pretty nasty . When I had milled it down the question became, what do I do with it now? I could only think, that would be great for a workbench/ outfeed/ assembly table. So I made it tall enough for my unisaw. Then I found some pretty nasty looking drawers, which had some nice hardware and dovetails. I thought those would fit perfectly underneath. The carcass is the only thing I bought some plywood for. All the other wood is salvaged. Now that it’s built I realize that it’s not going to fit very well in my garage shop that has two other benches. It’s also my first project where the wood dictated the final form which was new and neat for me. The finish is puritan pine and espresso gel stain with a spar urethane over it all. Thanks for looking.
