Okay,I have the base for the new workbench done and I’ve glued the 2 layers of MDF together for the top. The next steps will be to:
1- Attach the top to the bench. I’m using S clips here so there’s no issue
If I’ve missed anything or I’m doing something wrong, PLEASE let me know. I do have questions on whether the MDF is strong enough to hold the vise. The vise is an oldie but goodie and probably weighs 20-25 pounds. Is that going to be too heavy for the MDF? Would I be better off using carriage bolts instead of lag bolts to mount the vise? Will the weight of the vise be too much for gluing the plywood spacer to the MDF? Thanks!!
