Thought I would start this since it’s somewhat concurrently running through my head as I try to muddle through completing my entertainment center build and all of it’s frustration. The main issue is not having a place to go to to complete the small tasks – planing (end grain or otherwise), nowhere sturdy to really fasten things down, and it needs to be slightly mobile. I saw the new-fangled workbench video and thought – that’s it – that’ll fit my needs. I went ahead and bought the plans. My first thought is that I don’t have room for the full eight feet. Six maybe – but I was wondering if it would still be useful and plausible to cut it down to four feet? I laid out my materials list and halved all of the lengths by half that needed to be changed…I’m not good enough with Sketchup to modify the drawing by half… I think at some point I’ll haul over to Carter lumber and try to get a rough idea on price. I know it won’t be cheap, but maybe santa will be nice!
