« Part 3: Tom's Torsion Box - learning curve Part 4 of Torsion Box Workbench - aka - my first bench series Part 5: learning curve still hasn't changed... »

I’m glad Tom Caspar’s steps are so detailed. Tonight I tackled marking out and drilling the side and center pieces, getting them counterbored on both sides and painted (essentially steps 4 and 5 I think in the directions). If I wouldn’t have had other chores I could’ve gotten further but oh well. Tomorrow will be a great evening to be in the shop hopefully. busted a 5/32 drill bit and a countersink bit because of my cruddy B&D chuck…I wish it was a good enough excuse to buy a new drill!

I would recommend to anyone considering this plan to print the pictures and make sure they are enlarged enough to read. When planning out the holes, they give you the measure to the center of the 2×4. I went the extra step and marked out the 2×4 (which I can’t see now that the black paint is on but oh well). The enlarged drawings are a big help. I had other ah ha moments but I didn’t have anything to write them down on so I’m hoping I’ll remember them tomorrow when I go back out to my momentarily all mine two car garage shop :D
