Getting Started

I've decided to build a new workbench. The sorry thing I'm using now does not really qualify as one. Maybe as an assembly table or work surface, definitley not a real workbench. I've posted more details about the decision that led me to build a new bench and choice of materials on my personal blog.

-thanks for looking.

Greetings:.... A good solid workbench in a woodshop is a MUST. You just can't do good work without one.
You want a bench that has plenty of "muscle", and won't rack or bounce around when/ if you
pound on it. It needs to have a stout base and solid top (say 2", or better). It has to be able
to take all the abuse you throw at it, and hold it's on. I think besides the tablesaw, a good
workbench is #2 on the list of tools.

Starting on the Bench Top

From Sawdust

I've posted the latest progress on my new workbench project over on my personal blog.

Work has started on laminating the wood for the top.

Thanks for looking.
Thank you for taking the time to show us your workbench and its progress. I wish I was building a workbench I really need one. I also wish that great looking southern yellow pine was sold at lumber yards here in California.
