Had two large pieces of the old work bench shelves that I salvaged from my shop tear out last weekend. I'm wanting a dedicated bench to put my sharpening tools/supplies on and another to setup as my reloading bench.
I cut the tops about in half, one side 6" longer. Added new caps to the cut ends, then cut some 2x4's for legs and screwed them on. Also added a piece of plywood on top to firm up the top.
Here's the sharpening bench. I unboxed my old sharpening mandrel and am setting it up with a set of the 'scary sharp' wheel sets I bought a few years back. We'll see how it works, but I do like the leather wheel and buffing wheel setup for my carving tools.
Also plan to keep the honing stones, small belt sander, and drill doctor on it as well. Not pretty, but should do the job for now until I get things a little more organized. I do plan to replace these and re-use them for garden benches down the road, but will work for this for now.
