Up until yesterday my “workench” was two solidcore doors on top of base cabinets against a wall. I have been really trying to move more and more to hand tools and not having vices & dog holes was getting tough.
I played with the idea of making my own bench but decided that i didnt have the time (newborn at home) or money (newborn at home…) to build the workbench that I would be satisfied with making – i didnt want to take time to just make an ‘okay’ bench.
It seems that the majority of my generation (mid 20’s) have little interest in woodworking, especially with hand tools.
Sure enough someone replied. $20 and a case of beer later, i brought this little guy home.
BUT this little bench brings capabilities to my shop that I never had.
PLUS in the drawer, there was this marking gauge and these card scrapers :)
Now, my question—
What do you guys think would be best to stiffen/beef this guy up? (please save the throw it away and start over comments)
Thanks in advance
