Nice job. That’s a nice workbench for $38.
-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.

Thanks Bill, the wood was free from pallets I made the stain from linseed oil and artist oil paint thinned with spirits. I wanted the color to match my Gretsch 6120. And I didn’t want to use bolts or nails. Each bench weighs about 300 pounds.

Those were some sturdy pallets. I have a company in the area of my fire department that makes things like axle shafts for golf carts and their stock comes in 12’ crates made from 110 and 16 full length. I have made all the siding for my chicken coop, numerous shelves in my house and numerous other projects with them. Great to use that stuff.
