1st let me say…...........Whew!!! I am so happy to have something to share here on this great site of Lumberjocks. I’ve been “out” of my shop for far too long. Anyhoo, I don’t consider this “fine-woodworking”, but, at least it’s something since a few years ago… I used a solid core door from a big box store as the top. (I still need to add son edges around the top). 2×4 construction with the ever loving Kreg pocket holes. Man is this thing solid. I added some 3” locking wheels from Harbor Freight, and I rolled it around when it was full of a bunch of crap that I was re-situated in my garage, not my shop. Anyhoo, as always, thnx for lookin in, and any good/bad/or ugly comments are always appreciated. I hope everyone is doing fine and dandy. Oh, I did want to add that the 3 tubs underneath are for my re-cycling bins for paper/tin/and plastics. We have a recycle place just down the hill from my house. Makes it easy to help our environment.

It’s wonderful to see a post from you Roger! You built yourself a sturdy, functional bench right there. I say, for the fun of it, submit it for publishing to Fine Woodworking magazine! Haha

Good job Roger. I built one just about like yours several years ago. My door came from an old school down the road.
They were doing some remodeling and I got the door for free. Keep up the good work.

Good stuff there Roger! Good to see you back.

I’ve been “away” from my shop for a bit too. Just life and other activities going on. Be well brother!
