Well, after transforming my former equipment maintenance shop from my defunct business to a WW shop I am near completion on my first project: a shop bench. As I finished the top this week with the addition of a 12” face vise, I realized it was way to stout for me to maneuver on to the base. I will have to wait for the muscle (my son) to arrive for Tgiving from college.
Here is a pic of the base:
And a few of the top:
Supposedly this bench can be made in a weekend. I suppose it can if you have all your material ready Saturday morning and eliminate the half dozen trips to HD for misc things, if you get up really early and have a 3 day weekend without a phone, wife, adult children and son-in-laws offering tons of inconsequential advice. I know it is not a laminate top but it will do for the next several years.
Oh, here is a pic of that new ‘old’ reconditioned Unisaw I purchased from Redmond Machinery. I opted to buy a CI wing extension and shorter rails rather than SawzAll the rails that came with the saw.
