I decided to build a garage workbench using some Christmas money.
The dimensions of this bench are 6ft long and 30 inches wide. I am not sure its max holding capacity, but so far it held me, my wife , my friend and a miter saw, so that is probably like 500lbs.
This is my first wood working project, and definitely not my last. I learned a lot in this project, like squaring is important. Having a tiled garage isn’t good because the friction is reduced which makes things slide a lot easier on the ground, especially when drilling. Also, i learned that treated wood is larger then untreated wood? yea, anyways so many quirks in this table but I am very proud of it!
If anyone is interested here are the plans for this workbench.
Also, in case anyone was wondering this bench set me back about $50. However you could make this a lot cheaper by not adding that top shelf. The top shelf alone took 9 2×4’s.
