Sturdy Workbench Modified

July 13, 2013 |

About This Project

This is a modified version of the sturdy workbench. I made it six feet long, about three feet wide (I can't remember exactly), and 36'' high. Since I'm 6'2'', I needed a bench that didn't keep me constantly bending over.

I used Douglas Fir framing lumber and 3/4'' plywood for the surface. The plywood was a cheap replaceable option since hardwood is extremely expensive in my area. The wood warped a bit after I built it, so its clearly not perfect. But who cares, its a workbench after all...

I used left over paint / stain I had laying around in the garage. The gray is a custom mix interior paint, and the stain is Minwax Golden Oak. I used 1 coat of stain, and three coats of Poly.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$100
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Type of Wood: 
Douglas Fir.
Finish Used: 
Minwax golden oak 1x, conditioner 1x, and poly 3x.

Gray and Golden Oak

Looks great. :) I like the gray and golden oak together; two neutrals I would not have thought to pair.
