The old conference table was a freebie, left by the landlord who didn’t want it.
Perfect, I thought, for my first workbench. Flipped the glossy top over, cut off
the oval sides, added supports on the base and installed the vise. Voila!
Well, it has helped me with all projects, but I am now constructing a heavy duty
western style workbench. The converted bench is too low, which results in a back
ache after a length of work. Secondly, even two layers of MDF have given way
to sag with the weight of the heavy front vise.
I’ve glued 4 sticks together as a start on the new bench, but I can see that these
twisty sticks are going to cause me lots more time and effort. Will post the new
bench when it’s finished.
Yes, I’m a lefty.
