I have two projects that I want to build for my shop soon. One is a new workbench and the second is a pair of saw benches.
My goals for the new bench will be:
1) Very solid and sturdy. I don’t want it going anywhere unless I want it to.
Other than storing the saw benches, I don’t want anything else underneath the bench. If found the hard way (see my previous bench that is now my lathe stand at http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30063) that you need some open space under the bench top to allow for clamping and securing work pieces to a bench top. I’m thinking that, although, I probably need the bench more, I probably should build the saw benches first just for the purpose of helping to figure out that accomodation when building the bench. If any of you guys have ideas that might be helpful, please chime in.
