    my idea for a workbench

    all 2x6's, and i plan on a 1/2 to 3/4 plywood top. nothing fancy mind you, but quick, easy, and durable. i built one for my dad, and he's put it through some heavy usage, and we only need to replace two of he top boards because he was a little rough on the ends.

    i forgot to mention, that the boards on the bottom are there for the mounting of casters.

    If you have built one and it works then I would do another. My first thought was it might want to move if you were planing on it from left to right (or vice versa). So I was thinking make the legs L shaped. Attach a stringer across the bottom under the shelf. But if it works.....
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
