Introducing my new workbench that I just finished. I Love It! This is my version of the Weekend Workbench from The WoodSmith Shop. I followed the design pretty closely – I only made my top a bit smaller and added the drawer case instead of a shelf. Here’s the specs:
4 layers 3/4” MDF laminated
trimmed with douglas fir
bench dogs spaced 4” apart
row of dogs up front will accept my wonder dog
3/4” ply case
left space between case and top for a small shelf
22” deep with 22” full ext slides
progressive depth of drawers: 2 1/4”, 3 1/2”, 4”, 4”
Finished it with 4 coats of wiping varnish—1 part naptha, 1 part boiled linseed oil, 2 part poly semi-gloss
This thing is a beast. I’m guessing it’s around 350-400 lbs – and I don’t even have the drawers filled with any tools yet. If I ever move, I can take the top off and the drawer case out.
Thanks for looking!
