Workbench Makeover

Some things are hard to get rid of and this old workbench is one of them.

Alex built this workbench sometime during the 1980's. It has moved state to state, shop to shop for all those years. Its hard life was revealed by a heavily soiled and damaged work surface and a sag in the middle that was only getting worse with age.

Faced with its demise, Alex decided to keep this shop companion and bring it back to life.

The retrofit included adding two new legs and some support pieces to the center of the bench. This removed the sag that had occurred over time. Two drawers and an enclosed shelf were then added. To complete the makeover, the old work surface was removed and a new Oak top put in its place.

Perhaps there is another 30 years of life left in this bench.
