Closer to success

Nice.   My last bench I built I had some scrap 4x6's and used those for legs.  You can pound on it all you want and it does not move.  The 2x10's on top kinda helps.

Got a call from one of my sub contractors for work.  He was scrapping a large metal table and offered it to me.   It's 10ft x 2ft, 1/4" plate top and sides(riveted together, so it's like a mid'40's-50 table) with a nice vise.  $200!!  I got it for work, gives me someplace to do my repair/welding without having to use tables all around the shop.

My current work table is a 3ft square granite inspection plate!   Ya, it's all we had.....LOL!

The bench looks great!

And as long as you get the Mack into the shop you will find out a different feeling of owning it. Any action or work to it could be done at any time. Without bothering of having it or parts exposed to rain or snow of worrying of someone relocate a part or tool you rest interrupting a job.
