I just bought a used workbench top from another woodworker. It’s made of some kind of fir, flat, heavy, and pretty solid and came with a heavy duty vice, and unfortunately I wouldn’t have the time to make one myself with all the projects I have, so this should work well for me for quite a while, at least until I get around to making the “dream” bench. Anyway, this workbench top was previously attached to the wall on a foldable mount and I need to build an actual base for it.
The difficulty is that even though the top of the bench is flat, the bottom is not. It was left as is, neither planed nor leveled (it’s a lamination).
Knowing that, any advice on building a base and attaching it to a workbench top with a non-flat or leveled underside? I am not sure yet if I want a trestle base or not, that part doesn’t matter that much to me.
