    Workbench for the Shop

    I spent my Iced in day working in the shop building this little 24" X 48" X 36" workbench/Table for the shop. It came out pretty good and suits my needs well I think.

    My plan is to learn to build furniture and I am going to be self taught.

    You made that one in a single day? Man you're fast

    It looks very sturdy and I'm sure it will see a lot of use. Have you planed to put a vice one it?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I also dream of a shop with north light where my hands can be busy, my soul rest and my mind wander...

    I am going to build a vise table that will set over part of this. I don't use it that much so I figured this way I could have two things. I want to also build a sanding table that will set over this. Make it multi purpose.

    Gary, that is one nice looking sturdy bench. I like the doubled up legs and the drawer and cabinet. First rate!

    One day!

    You been taking "Allen" lessons?

    I like it. Looks like a strong and functional piece.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Excellent bench. Looks like it'll take a pounding. We'll steer you around to adding a permanent vise and drilling holes in top eventually The more ways you can anchor stuff to your bench, the easier your work will be.

    Very impressive for a day's work!
    All the best,
