Since I just redid the welding scarred workbench. I now need advice what to do with the boards. They are in a pile on my shop floor.

They are welding scarred one side. And not all 100% flat.

They are 2×6x8’ and there is 8 of them… They are pine, regular construction lumber.

So any ideas?

Biggest problem I see is if there happens to be any slag in them when you go to surface them you will wreck whatever you use to surface them.
Probably could turn them over and make a picnic bench out of them.

I ended up turning them over, adding about 100 nails, and presto, mitre saw/handtools table is 90% done. @ 8ft long(I got lazy, may trim them) it hugs the wall. Under it, I will probably put the shop vac…

I should add, its right now on top of a couple trash barrels…. I hope no one throws alot away tonight.. lol… The trick will be tommorrow getting it down… lol…
