My first workbench
I was going through some files on my computer and found a couple of pictures from when I built my first workbench a couple of years ago. I only had a cordless circular saw and a cordless drill at the time and it was my excuse to buy a mitre saw. I had zero woodworking experience and was determined to over engineer the hell out of it. I think that I used 13 – 2×4’s on that one bench. Each leg is made out of 2 pieces of 2×4 that are screwed together in an L shape. I notched each one at the top and bottom by making a bunch of horizontal cuts with the circular saw and then cleaning them out with a chisel.
