Here is my bench, click on the link for a couple extra shots. The top is an old lab bench my grandfather used when he was in med school. Later when they were remodeling the building he took it home where it sat in his garage for 40 years waiting for a grandson to come along. It’s solid maple, 96×30x2”, and probably weighs in the 300-400lb range (150lb for the bench top alone). The frame is construction lumber, drawers are plywood and everything has a coat of tung oil on it. Not pretty, but very functional and it has some sentimental value as well. Next step is to add some wheels that can be raised or lowered so I can move it around when necessary.
