Needed a workbench, so last spring I threw one together. Came out pretty good. It has casters for mobility.

That is a really neat bench, well made and finished.

One problem:

Too purty to work on…

A good workbench is a “must have” in a woodshop….It’s the center of all activity in the shop.
Stellar job on the build….Ain’t it fun to build something, then put it to good use…...

That’s a decent addition as far as tools go! One of the most instumental resources you can have in a shop… Now, if only your new wood vice can be accomodated, :P

This an example of what I would like to build. What I need is a materials list, and a few diagrams of how it was thrown together.

Have your say...
