Hi all, well i am at a stage of woodworking where pretty much have the big tools and most of the little tools but every time i start a project i find myself needing some other jig i dont have.
This week its a workbench. I had to stop work on my Walnut project (to be posted another day) because i found myself working on the edge of the table saw fence. Thats when i said enough.!
So when Matt started on about workbenches i decided to build one of the plans i sent him from Popular Woodworking. Its called the $175 woodworker workbench but i hope to come in even less since i was given a nice old vice (pic later) to put on my bench.
This bench is a clever design using plain old pine from the borg (HD) and using a size where you get no waste. Total number of lengths required is 8 lengths of 2x8 12ft long. Pic out the best and cut to size. Glue up and voila workbench.
So part one here are the pictures to prove.
