I wanted a bench to assemble my projects on but didn’t want to spend a lot of money on lumber, I decided to build it out of 2×4 white pine and MDF to save money. This is my first workbench and I’m sure I will be building a new one down the road but for now it works great!

It looks like a very useful bench. So that’s why they’re called vise grips. LOL

Looks like a very nice bench. I made my first benchtop out of MDF over 3” of plywood. It makes a great top.

Very nice… That is perfect for what I was wanting to do. Did you have plans for that, or did you just “put it together” so to speak? Would love any drawing or closer pics if you were willing to share.

Randy, I’m going to build the ultimate miter station with my own little touches to it for more cabinets in the shop, but I did cut out a the extra piece of MDF for the bottom for storage.

Impressive. Very nice. I read your bio – you lie… you can not just be getting started in wood working. Either that or after three+ years I still suck! Nice work brother.
