Just finished my new/ first workbench from a set of Woodsmith’s plans. “Finished” is not the right word since I still need to add a vise… but it is useable now. Fir plywood top & pine base. Finished with 2 coats of BLO. The plans call for MDF but when I asked for it at the local lumber yard they looked at me as if I were from outer space. Same reaction when I asked for 2X8 fir boards.
I plan to cover the top with either hard board or some type of laminate since the plywood is extremely soft (it already has dings & gouges from the build). Any way it is super sturdy & heavy. Thanks for looking
