Hello there.
Here’s a work bench I just made from scrap timber left over from our balcony.
I haven’t done any woodwork for a while – and it shows.

However once again I enjoyed doing some manual work and the satisfaction of another job completed.

We often talk about over engineering jobs, which is normally better than the opposite.
One downside of over doing this one is that it is almost too heavy for me to move.

Anyway, now I can make and fix some more things in the new year.

All the best, and keep chipping away!

Nice job and way Heavy Duty and free left over wood is a win for sure.
Now you need to buy a fork lift to tot it around but one of those projects once it finds it’s place it stays put.

It looks like a nice sturdy bench and will be a fine addition to your shop.

A lot better than my first workbench!
Sturdy and functional.
