I needed a quick workbench so I could set up for gun maintenance and reloading away from the dust of the woodshop. The wood bench with four drawers and a vice looked like it would do the job and it was $119.00 with a coupon. The first one I picked up the top was totally destroyed beyond repair. After a trip to HF for a replacement I put it together easily by not reading the instructions. About a half hour and some extra screws and glue it is surprisingly very sturdy and will fit my needs. All that is left is assemble the drawers and mount my reloading equipment. Someday I will build a better one and donate this one to Habitat. My rating: 4.5 stars for quality and assembly and -1.5 for packaging.
I made this shop workbench for my oldest son. The structure is southern yellow pine (SYP) ripper from 2” x 8” dimensional lumber and is fabricated so that it can be disassembled. The horizontal members are attached to the side frames with 3/8” dia. bolts. The drawers sides are made from ½” birch plywood. The drawer bottoms are 1/8” hardboard. The right drawer is a double drawer. All three drawers have dovetails joints. The drawer slides are made from SYP. The bottom shelf is ½” birch plywood. The top is made from 2 pieces of ¾” MDF and 1 piece of 1/8” hardboard banded with ¾” pine. The Craftsman vise (made in USA) attachment will be such that it can be located on any corner of the top. The plans for the workbench is inspired from Shopsmith magazine issue 66, December 1989.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
