I searched the forums a bit but could not find an answer to my question. I have made the plywood “rock-solid plywood workbench” from FWW.
I have one 3/4 inch sheet of birch plywood for the top and want to add two more 3/4 inch layers. What is more solid?
The idea would be to leave the top layer loose so that it could be replaced when it gets damaged. and surround the whole top with 3/4” solid wood edging (probably oak).
Also just to verify, usually a front vise is mounted at the left hand side, correct? I am left handed but my husband is right handed so this is a bit of a conundrum—I think my brain is a bit more flexible where it comes to handedness so I think I’ll mount it on the left for now. I can always add another vise at the other side, I suppose. Any thoughts?
Many thanks in advance.
