This is a work bench that I designed from a couple different ideas i found online. The bench is made from white pine 2×4’s – 2×6’s – 2×8’s and I stripped the 2×4’s down to 2×3’s and cut dadoes in them to make it stronger. There are over 60 dadoes through out this bench. The shelves are full extension and can hold up to 100 lbs.

Interesting design. I like the amble storage area and slide out shelves.

Great looking bench! You will get hours of enjoyment working on it. I like the tenon design and you will like the full sliding shelves. Thanks for sharing.

Great bench Lance, checked out your vidoe on youtube aswell, you’ve got a great space to work with. I’m just starting out aswell, I bought an old bench so it’s my starting point, my main aim is to build items to help in the workshop & to build up the tools required (this will take a while!!) so I started with a charging station and a very basic cross cut sled. My projects are few and far between but hope to spend more time on this as I progress. All the best with everything.

I just installed those same drawer slides—I think it was from Lowes. They are a really nice set—very strong and allow the drawer to be pulled out 100 percent.

Nice work.

Very nice Lance. One of the many projects I have to do. I currentlyl have a simple bench as shown in my “workshop” secton of LJ. I built that when I had no interest in wood working. Now that I have the bug, I’ll be changing it… someday.
