|One Project Closer's Workbench. Praying that mine will turn out this nice. NOTE- I WISH MY WHOLE SHOP LOOKED THIS NICE.|
I also followed their suggestion of getting cabinet grade 3/4 inch plywood and having Home Depot cut it in half length wise to save you a step when you get home. Well I won't do that again because they did kind of crappy job at it. If you don't know how to cut a piece of plywood please check out Kristen @ Pink Toes and Power Tools. She has a video on How to cut plywood with a circular saw. Worth your time to watch it!
Here is me starting my bench. You are suppose to cut the legs at 36". When you add the casters and the plywood the finished bench should have be around 40".I am 5'5" on a good day and I am not getting any taller and the 40" was just too tall for me so I cut me legs at 30" which put my finish bench at 36"
|Here is my bench upside down so I can place the brackets for the bottom shelf. Irwin Quick Grip Clamps are a MUST!|
|The leg is clamped to help me.|
|Putting on the bottom brace and casters. Remember every project must have a random kitty in the pic!|
|Bottom shelf in and getting ready to put on the top.|
|Where is the top?|
|Here it is!!! BEAUTIFUL! I love it! It is AWESOME!|
