Scrappy Workbench

I made this work bench from third hand scraps of a variety of hardwood veneer plywood. Interesting stuff, there is a pine core, then mdf on both sides of the pine, then hardwood veneer. Some had more layers. Harbor Freight magnetic tool holders on the ends for turning tools etc. I was in desperate need of drawers for storage. These drawers are very simple, but they work. Lathe is bolted down. But there is room to set my Bosch router table or my jet spindle sander on the other end.

Good Job. You have the luxury of a complete turning station with mobility to boot.
