This is my very first wood project. I built a workbench for my workshop, and I love the way it turned out. It is a nice looking Workbench that was easy to build.

It is 10 feet wide and 2 feet deep.
I used 5 Brackets for the support and screwed a 2×4 on top of each bracket. After I did that, I used 6 1×4 and laid them on top for the top of the work bench.

Once I got done, I put up some peg board on each side for some tools.

Please let me know what you think!!

Thanks, Joshua Warren

Good Start Joshua. Nice work bench for you to start out and use. Looking forward to more photos of your next project and as your shop progresses.

What cuts do you make with the radio-controlled buggy? :) Better than any scroll saw!

What a great first project! Lots of room for future clutter! I like how you have some space behind the back most board so your power cords can hang out of the way.

The bench looks sturdy enough. Mine is not attached to anything and it’s not really heavy so I get some movement when I’m using handplanes. You would have to move your entire shop along with the bench. You will probably get tired of your body casting a shadow on your work so I would recommend a set of florescent lights directly above the bench, or possibly a couple end to end.

Nice and sturdy and inexpensive. My first shop was one of those metal buildings 12’ X 12’. Sold it when I built the shop I have now. Twice the room and four times the clutter. LOL Keep it up and let’s see some projects flow out now.
