« Part 4: Plywood and drill bits.... Part 5 of Torsion Box Workbench - aka - my first bench series Part 6: again with the wheels?! »

I think I’ll be making certain that I take my notebook out to the garage with me later on this morning when it’s time to work. That way when I make a mistake I can write it down and how I fixed it so next time I may hopefully be So I’ve made some headway and gotten the ends and the center piece assembled after a few mistakes. I’m not sure how one of my panels had holes drilled in the wrong spots but it did, so I bought extra plugs to hopefully fill some of those in or they’ll just be left as decoration. I also missed the last step in the directions for drilling the holes for the rods through the end pieces about insetting the outside brace by 5/8. I’m hopeful this won’t impact the structure too much. I was able to get the rods cut and one threaded through the center portion of the bench this week. I’m glad I was forced to stop to go to an appointment because I do not believe the directions tell you the braces are due to be adhered at this point – but they need to go on before the rod is on and tightened down. I believe someone else building one of these made a similar remark about the directions being a bit lacking there. I’ll have to go look and review the directions. I’m making changes to my set of directions if anyone is interested – all minor at least where I thought they were lacking and some notes only pertain to my build/thought process but I’d be happy to share! :)
