In my new workshop I needed a workbench. The one from the old shop was wallmount and too small. This gave me 2 options: buy a workbench or build a workbench. After a lot of searching I did not find what I was searching for. It was either the wrong size, or too expensive or both. So the only option left was to build it myself.
First I made a drawing of how I want to build the frame:
To start the project I harvested the ugly ceiling trees that where in my living room.
To connect them together I used mortise and tenon connections in combination with wood glue.
Test without glue:
After this I could glue them together one section at the time beceause I did not have enough clamps to do more at once.
Complete desk glued up:
Desk in place:
After a few weeks I came across an ad of a free desk frame with steel drawers. I dismantled the drawers and painted them black. These are now installed underneath the desk: (don’t mind the mess, the desk is in use for some time now).
On the next part I will show the LED desk lighting.
