hi everyone,
this is my new workbench that i built, took about 4 days. it originally was just a pine dinning table that i got from freecycle, but i thought it could do with a bit of smartening up.
the top is made from two tops of pine dinning table and the legs are fench post that i had spare.
the draw i took off one of the tables and made it fit and the record vice was also from freecycle (a real stroke of luck that bit).
all in all the total cost= £0.
with money a bit tight at the moment i think it turned out ok.
hope you like it.

Looks like a very usable bench. And Free is always good.

” i think it turned out ok.”
Ok Mr. Understatement! That’s way better than ok, I love how beefy the vise looks compared to the dimensions of the bench.
Are the dog holes round?
Very nice repurpose.
