A few years ago I replaced my workbench top in the shop. While I was at it I made a new cabinet and wound up only using the legs from the old bench. So I held onto the old top and cabinet, thinking I would use it someday....that day is here. I'm making new legs for it to go in the basement, it won't be a workbench, per se, but rather a bench for me to work on my guns and do some reloading stuff. Anyway, to make the legs I decided to use Douglas Fir instead of SYP or other construction lumber, and while I have them mostly done, it's the last time for this. The fir has given an uncountable number of splinters, sap all over everything, and has generally been a pain to work with. Should have just went with a cheap hardwood. On top of all that, the shop has that softwood smell from the machining I've done to get to to size. Ugggh!
