Creation number one started with a typical workshop need. Work surfaces..... namely work tables. In most woodworking projects a big flat surface is needed at some point. Being heavy is also a plus - do not want it moving around when planing, hammering, clamping, or any other operation. Having said that - mobility is also a plus as projects and workspace requirements change. The tables I build are southern yellow pine with tops that are 2 and 1/4 inches thick, 4 foot wide by 6 foot long. The legs are sturdy 4 inch by 5 inch legs. Each table is on step down casters - so it can be easily moved when the need arises, but otherwise rests on the sturdy legs. Each table weighs over 200 pounds. These tables are sized for my needs and space. As I built them, I started thinking about workbenches - a need for anyone with a home. A place to work on all the inevitable projects that come with owning a home, and working on projects - so that became my first creation for sale.
Whether you want a work bench or table - either makes a great addition to any home shop, a statement piece in a living room, or anyone's man-cave or she shed. Take a look at the pictures below. This workbench is a great centerpiece in our living room for now. It would also work great as a Kitchen Island or television/digital media stand.
The workbenches and tables take 3-4 weeks to build, and I do not keep more than one in stock at a time - so let me know if you want one - it'll take a bit of time.
Also - I cannot deliver these - so contact me and we can work out how to get it to you.
Call about other wood choices (I started with pine as all the wood I cut for myself is not appropriately sized for workbenches - so I have to buy wood stock).
