I’m posting this forum because i need advises and coments about my workbench before i start working the wood. I am sort of a handy man and a sculptor/painter, i’ve already made some furniture for me and restoration of some old furniture.
It’s been a while since i was thinking of making my own workbench. For now i get to manage the ideal wood to start on my project.
So after i get the wood i was able to start thinking seriously in making my workbench, since i did in the past some carving and i am a sculptor/painter i was researching about some workbench design and i get to a conclusion i need a tall workbench since i will not use a hand planer to often, it good to have the work more closer to my eyes.
The dimensions of the workbench is 234cm long, 77cm deep and 90cm high, the top will be 7cm thick and the borders 14cm, i think i will get the estability i need. The workbench will be like some Shaker bench’s i saw but designed my way and according to my needs. The workench will have two vises and a removable cabinet that i will make later.
Don’t be shy and leave your opinions and advises, since i am a newbie in this subject.
Here’s some pictures:
