I might finally be able to set up a small workshop. First thing to be built will be a workbench. Due to cost and availability, SYP (southern yellow pine) will be the material used.
I have collected a number of different plans and have reread a few in the past couple of days and it looks like most of the bench tops are not attached to the legs but rather sit in pointed dowels that align the bench top to the base. Am I reading this correctly or is there a better way.
Obviously I would like a sturdy workbench without racking but it also will have to be somewhat easily disassembled so it can be removed at some point from the workroom through very tight quarters. I will laminate some ripped SYP for the slab top and then build a base that can be bolted together with bed bolts. Then I would have two end bases, four stretchers and the top for transport.
Does this make sense and can anybody offer some pointers or advice?
