Hello again everyone,
This was actually one of the first projects I built in my new shop… Sorry for taking so long to get it posted, but have been busy with other projects…
This was built from the fir that I had from the trees we took down to make room for my new shop. The fir was air dried for almost three years after milling. I went a little overboard using raised panel sides for this (I say that as it can’t be seen with the added cabinets beside it… )
This was the first bench in the row that will contain my Radial Arm Saw and Miter Saw (I am still working on the Miter Saw station).
The 12 drawers come in very handy and I am very happy that I went with them instead of shelves with doors…
They are all mounted on full extension glides and the faces came from one piece of fir for each row so the grain would flow across them… I made the handles out of more of the fir.
The bench top was built out of the same materials as all my other shop cabinets so they all match and the height was designed to be the same all the way across all three sections of this 15’ long row of cabinets… more to be built on later…
-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)
