2x4 Work Bench

author-gravatar FRH_Makes Aug 03, 2016

I have been wanting to build a "Real Workbench" for a long time but budget and spare time have been in the way. Finally I decided I could afford the project if I was able to make it out of 2X4 lumber and I would make the time. In the end I am glad I used cheap lumber. I learned a lot along the way and hope to apply what I learned to the next bench I build.

Great job on this bench, it's a nice, sturdy looking bench that will last you a lifetime. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet bench! I've got the bug now.  Is that Fir?  Think I'm going to do the Dusty Life Bench Build-off. 

Also, were are those wheels from?

Thanks for sharing. 

Really nice build! Awesome work! 

I think they are fir 2x4s but it is hard to be sure. Just picked the best ones i could find from Home depot and Lowe's. The wheels are from amazon.

I guess I built my bench to early for the build off huh?
