Alright everyone so I finally got into the shop last night and managed to do some glue ups and make some progress on my work bench. Sadly when I went to take pictures of my shop and the bench I realized I forgot my fancy expensive camera in the car my girlfriend took to school. SOOO They are the best quality since they were taken with my phone but you should be able to see whats in them. You’ll also be able to see how little I have to work with in my shop as of now haha. Enjoy

Last night I glued and screwed the right legs to the under skirt that will be used as a storage shelf eventually.

First I glued and clamped the leg to the skirt

Then I flipped the leg and skirt over, drilled starter holes, and put two screws into the skirt and leg

Then I continued to doing that with with other leg and left them propped up to dry

As you can see I’m working on what will soon be the top of the bench, which is now on stools.

Heres a couple pics of my mini shop. I’ll eventually have the bench pushed to the back where to tools hang
