So i moved into this house about 5 months ago and finally got a decent sized shop in the basement. First things first i need a bench. After going back and forth i saw this one online and loved it. I though hmmm if i make 2 i can put them back to back for a larger work surface, they can be in-feed and out-feed tables and so much more. I was able to get 75% if not more of the wood for free, just scraps here and there. Even all the oak was free, my company used it for shelving and was getting rid of all the shelving so i took it. The top is 2 layers of 3/4” MDF with a layer of hardboard (masonite) on top. all the drawers are 1/2” plywood with locking miter joints. he pulls are all made with scrpas of oak, 1-1/2” x 8” with 30deg bevels on all 4 sides. They all dual locking casters on them. The idea like i said will be to incorporate them into anything else i make. I miter saw station will use these as side tables, for a planer these are in-feed and out-feed tables. They already line up perfectly with my table saw for an outfeed table. In the end i think they came out pretty good, i wasn’t realy happy with the stain (to red), oh well. Ofcourse i have upgrades planned for them, the first being sone t-tracks inlayed in the tops of them. I hope you like’em, lemme know what you think….. Thanks LJ, you all make me better at this every day…..
