    My First Workbench




    Inspired by Getting Started in Woodworking, I built this bench. I mixed ideas from two plans and came up with this design. Far from perfect but at least I got started. I´ve had if for about a month now. It´s worked for me so I don´t think I will change it. I´ll build a better one some time.

    Tools used: Hand powered miter saw, electric drill, drill press (I got one after I messed up some of the M&T joints with my electric drill and chisels), chisels, mallet, screwdrivers, wrench, pliers, no 5 plane, block plane and clamps.

    Built from construction grade lumber. Finished with two coats of boiled linseed oil.

    I think the key here is the  drill press.  Very hard to make good holes with a handheld.  You need the stability of the dp.  Love to see a <a href="http://www.buylikesandfollowers.net/buy-youtube-views.html">video view</a>
