Thus far I've been doing all my wood work on top of an old IKEA dresser in the garage, which has already cost me a belt sander as the thing wobbles a lot and it fell off the top. I'm a believer in doing the best you can with what you have, so it hasn't bothered me too much, but I've kept an eye open for alternatives. My neighbors just finished building a huge front porch onto their house, and in exchange for getting it out of their garage they let me have most of the scrap wood. I did some measuring, and while there are some odd lengths which limits things a bit, it is all nice pressure-treated pine and I'm going to make a workbench. I took my measurements into SketchUp and laid this out... The work surface runs about 52x23". All of my wood is 1"-1.5" thick and the top is made from two layers of 1" since that is what I had the most of. The way the wood is arranged might be a bit odd, but I'm going off whatever was cut off this guys house. Since I can't start on the sawing unil Sunday, do y'all have any recommendations? It stands 38" high at the main surface, and because lighting in my garage is horrid I planned to add at least one light up under the shelf. I might be able to add drawers on later, but for now I'm out of usable pieces of wood. Will the legs need more support? They're all 3.5x3.5". Also, I've never tried before but can you run power tools out of an outlet strip? I've got access to two outlets in the garage, so I figured I'd put some more on the bench itself. Any guitar-specific features I should plan into this thing? Basically, if you have feedback or suggestions, I'd love to read them before Sunday.
