hi everyone,
this is my new workbench that i built, took about 4 days. it originally was just a pine dinning table that i got from freecycle, but i thought it could do with a bit of smartening up.
the top is made from two tops of pine dinning table and the legs are fench post that i had spare.
the draw i took off one of the tables and made it fit and the record vice was also from freecycle (a real stroke of luck that bit).
all in all the total cost= £0.
with money a bit tight at the moment i think it turned out ok.
hope you like it.

From here that looks like a right belter. Similar to a number of benches around these parts that tend to get used for a good few years before needing to be replaced. Value for money? at that price Brilliant.
Well done, enjoy using it.

That bench and vice look pretty solid to me and all for zero pence?

Well done, just brilliant.

Very nice. It just goes to show a bit of skill and some thought goes a long way. I expect that you will get a few years out of that before you get the bench bug.
