This is my first workbench which came out way better than I would have ever expected! (thanks to my good woodworking buddy Andy). We made the top out of douglas fir 2×6’s cut in 1 3/4” strips and laminated together. It measures 28” deep by almost 8’ long and about 39” tall. The drawers are made out of some reclaimed pine 1×4 that I glued up to make them extra deep. The drawers were made with box joints & dry erase board for the bottom. I think learning to make the drawers was the funnest part of the whole project. Andy trimmed the top & shelves out of some extra cherry wood he had. The shelves are made out of some extra cedar pickets that I had left from my fence I just put up. Finally the legs are out of some oak 4×4 that I salvaged from work. All together I think I probably have maybe $45 in the whole thing which is even more awesome!
