My first attempt at a proper work/assembly bench. Made 3 minor mistakes which is not critical. Very sturdy and perfect height. Replaceable hardboard top with a 20mm plywood backing, only secured by 8 pin nails. Worked on it last week a hour a day and Saturday the whole day.

Well done. I did a similar concept and it has served me well… hardboard over a solid core door, with maple edging. I used white hardboard as I needed as much light as possible, and it wipes up fairly easily. I write my notes on it among other things…

I admit, I am not so sure I can call mine a “workbench.” It is more of an assembly table as it sits on top of an old antique cabinet base that make up my drawer and doors. The best thing is that it serves as a flat level reference top for assembly. I put a vise on it which also helps.

Yours, I think, actually looks better.

Thanks guys, this is probably also gonna be more of measuring, setup and assembly table. I made it in such a way that my clamps works easily and cannot slip under the table. I love making frames so a flat surface is important. I just followed the guidelines of our fellow LJ, there is quite a lot of these type of tables/benches.

Have your say...
