My handmade workbench is complete. It received the last coat of tung oil this morning. It is laminated maple 30 inches by 7 feet by 2 1/2 inches thick. I mounted the bases and attatched the 1/2” plywood sides to the bench upside down then rolled it over completely assembled. I am estimating the weight at about 275 pounds. The other side of the bench has an open front with shelves built in underneath to store stuff as well a vise. I put a semi- fancy bench dog holder on the side, countersunk a deck screw and plugged with walnut. What a fun project this bench was and what a useful piece of equipment in the shop. Now I know what I messed up on so I can now build my REAL workbench and give this one to my Dad for christmas…....
Thanks for looking.
