How To Make A Workbench From Recycled Wood

When we propose to do something at home, no matter what materials we are dealing with, it is of paramount importance to have a surface where we can do the work without worrying about spoiling the place. Therefore, having a workbench makes our life much easier.

It can be bought from industrial wooden workbench manufacturer in the UK as much as it can be built. The following is the step-by-step design of a wooden workbench so you can start building your workshop.

The first step is to define the workbench design, how it will be built and what dimensions it will have. From there we can define a list of materials that will be used.

As it is a wooden workbench, we define the thickness of the pieces that will be used, as well as the type of wood that will be applied.

It is important that the workbench is robust and sturdy, as well as allowing any work to be done on it.

As for the type of wood, it needs to be preferably massive and heavy, which will give good stability. Imagine you working on a soft bench, swaying. It does not work.

The ideal is to buy the wood already fitted in some timber, which has its own machines for it. In this workbench you can use:

Surface: (1.30 m 0.58 m 4.5 cm) – 2 spliced 0.29 m sheet;

Feet: (0.86 m 10 cm x 5 cm) – 4 pieces of beam;

Horizontal sleepers: (5 m linear x 7 cm x 5 cm) – Rafters.

Purchased the pieces in larger sizes and, after making all the markings, cut to desired lengths using a hand-held circular saw.

To make the cuts perfect, use a piece of batten fixed with staples to the beams, which supports the base of the circular saw to slide correctly. Give the necessary measurement discounts from the base side to the saw axis.
