Workbench base


The lady asked, “Where’s the beef?”  I’ve got your beefy goodness right here under my workbench.  The base is built from 6″x6″ pine and it’s every bit as beefy as it looks in the pictures.  I knew I wanted to make the base as hefty as possible (going with the Workbench commandments).  The best I could find that was both reasonably priced and reasonably dry was some pine timbers from the lumber mill that had been there for “a few years” according to the lumberyard assistant.
