A simple sturdy workbench

Submitted by Saladin on Sun, 11/02/2014 - 08:54

This was my first DIY woodwork project. When I started exploring DIY woodworking ideas, tutorials and demos, I instantly became aware that I'd require a workbench before actually building any decent product.

This project uses 2X4 and 4X4 pine with top and bottom of MDF. Nuts and bolts were used to join legs catering for 6 inch wood depth. I provide around 3 inches protruding for clamps and I am glad I did that as it is used quite often as I work alone and needs a lot of clamping. The bottom shelf is very useful for stroing wood also.

This project is actually an amalgamation of different ideas I gather from woodworking websites and tailored for my suitability.
