It took a couple of full weekends working away to get this done, but I couldn’t be happier with the results.
This workbench has made such a difference to my hobby, my only regret with this build is that I didn’t do it 8 years ago, my enjoyment levels are through the roof when using it.
It’s made from your standard 2×4 lengths of structural pine from the big box store here in Australia. Then to hide my poor handiwork on the top and end, I have some inlays of hardwood, spotted gum in this case. These inlays look (to my eye at least), fantastic, I love the way they cleaned up the slab once added.
As it was such a big project for me, I ended up filming quite a bit, I decided to edit the video into a 2 parter, if you’re interested you can watch them both below.
Not having all the right tools and all the right skills, when watching the video you may think I’ve done a strange job in parts, but I assure you, the bench comes out solid, level and steady at the end, great fun using it too!
I’ve got a lot more info about this bench on my website if you’re interested as well: www.thewoodfather.com
