Maple Top Work Bench

DSC00005The first of several needed and planned for in our weaving shop, this work bench is made from a laminated maple table top that was on its way to the dump…a renovation happening at an electrical shop.  I first began sanding the top with a hand-held belt sander this afternoon.  It was so discoloured, scratched, and gouged that it took an hour to just get it to a decent state.

I trimmed all sides with a circular saw to make the edges sharp, then cut and planed 2″x6″ dimensional rough lumber to make the start of a stand…



With more sanding belts I will finish the top, apply an oil finish and build a couple of shelves for storage both under and above.
