I made this workbench for my wife, who makes custom jewelry. Finished jewelry pieces are hung on the peg board.
Work table is 40” x 24” and 30” tall. Top shelf is 7’ tall. Bench is sized for her small office and table height is so she can sit and work.
Scrap 2×4 frame is constructed with 16d nails and liquid nails. Sliders are nailed to the feet to protect the floors.
Scrap 3/4” subfloor sheathing for the shelves and table.
1/8” maple plywood scrap (sitting in my garage for the past 6 years) for the table top.
LED light mounted under the first shelf is equipped with a dimmer and goes super bright. This 24” lamp cost about $70 at HD. I am unhappy about the cost, but very impressed with the light. I plan on incorporating some LEDs into my new shop.
We moved right before the holidays, so the new “workshop” is a disaster. I constructed this bench using just a skil saw, jig saw, straightedge, and pencil. I havn’t done any woodwork in a couple of months and it sure felt good to make a bunch of saw dust.
Thanks for having a look.
