Here’s a view from the shop mahal. That’s the riight half of my old workbench. It was a clutter collector, truth be told, and far too tall for most folks at 42” high. It has hemlock legs, and a torsion box bottom shelf. The top is a commercial benchtop, with an ash apron on two edges.

I had two of those as my workbench in the old shop, but I’m planning on splitting them up, this one will be my lathe station, and will be cut down to a much lower height. The metal cabinet will become the base of my drill press station, but that’s another project.

I have a lot of clutter collectors!!
I’d be very nervous about cutting something down to another height…

Debbie, More for having the lathe at the best height than anything. I’m tall, but want to have good leverege at the lathe. I think it would be a bit too high if I just bolted it down as is.

Debbie, I remembered that I had a shot of my overall bench. As you can see, It was quite messy.
