Well here is my workbench that I just finished. I did most of it from various and assorted pallets that I found, many of them included some fine red oak. I painstakingly pulled all of the 100000000000 nails out and cut it all to size. The 4×4 came from underneath my dads old shed. I also put a piece of birch plywood underneath the top for more support. The drawers were from maple plywood from my first ever project a bookshelf. Plus some pine that my nieghbor was throwing away from a remodel. It’s 40 inches high (I’m taller and that height is good for me) 50 inches long and 20 inches deep. I’m no.woodworker yet so I’m trying my darnedest. I have seen some fantastically beautiful benches here from gorgeous exotic woods and I hope to have one of those later in life (along with a powermatic table saw). This certainly isn’t the prettiest girl at the dance but she tangos well enough for this newbie.
I also want to say thank you to all of you for how welcoming you are to a young guy just having fun and inspire me with the posts of your amazing projects.
