This is a workbench I made for my daughter for here hobby making jewelry. I posted this not because it is a great example of woodworking, rather because it was made using 2×4s, construction plywood, and shipping crate lumber. It is simple and designed for a specific use, and built to accomidate her height. It was fun and fairly inexpensive to make and should give many years of service. Similar models through supply stores are pretty expensive. Woodworking is suppose to be fun and every project does not have to be a work of art to be appreciated.

That is great and I totally agree with you, recycling and reusing local wood is a good habit.
Your daughter will appreciate the effort and love you put into this much more than dovetail drawers and fine woods

Recycle, recycle, recycle. Great job on the jeweler’s bench. Does she need some stones for her work? I was given about a bushel basket of tigers eye, amethyst, star burst onyx, and a bunch that I have no idea of what you call them. If so PM me.

BTW I just became the proud owner of my grand fathers watchmakers bench, circa 1914. May this one make it to your great grand kids. Rand

It’s a great benefit of ww that we can make custom pieces to meet our or others specific needs. My projects have all been pine or shop grade ply. I and or the recipients have always loved them regaurdless.

Your project looks lovely and I know it will be treasured by your daughter. That’s the point. Goal met and congrats!
