I’m fortunate to work on site most of the time toward the end of new house construction and am able to scavange quite a bit of unreturnable material. I install custom stair cases and railings. On one job I was asked to stick around and help a trimmer friend install beams in the main living room of the house and they were made out of sugarpine by the owners request. Well after the beams were done, there was so much material left over that the timmer said we have to get rid of this before the homeowner sees it, so I ended up with a truck load of rough cut re-sawd 8/4 sugarpine.
Needing a new workbench and looking at the pile of pine i just got, hmmmm, looks like a workbench in that pile. After looking at quite a few workbench plans, this is what came up with. The base is 38” x 60” with a top that is 48” x 75”.
At one point I had too much time on my hands hence the 5 piece raised panel drawer fronts and duet panel cabinet doors.
