no previous part Part 1 of My Workbench series no next part

I am a woodworker, an engineer, a maker, and a tinkerer. I built myself a workbench that height adjustable and completely solid that will last for generations. The full project description is here.

But if your like me, you will find that a project, though completed, is never really done. I started this blog to document my starting point for any modifications and upgrades I do to the bench.

That looks pretty hard to improve on ….. but then you’re an engineer. You will keep tinkering. :-)
