As I have mentioned earlier I will be upgrading from my little old bench to a new one. I had been getting all of the bits and pieces together and ordered all of the other goodies.
I had a hold up getting the frame built from a mate of mine as he was flat out doing paying work so it took a lot longer than I had planned.
We converted to double garage into a combined cave for both the wife and myself. This meant that we removed the roller doors and got the holes bricked in.
And we ended up with a nice space.
Because it gets hot over here in God’s country (and I am getting soft) we put in air conditioning.
We also filled in the back of the garage and put in a sliding glass door and roller shutter for security.
Once the frame work was completed we installed it and bolted it to the wall.
Then the timber sheeting for the bottom shelf was attached.
Then the fun part, putting on the top.
We also put the same top on a set of draws that we made for a different project and now provides storage.
In this photo you will also see a large table that again was repurposed and has wheels on the bottom that will be used a work bench.
So there it is though there is still more work to be done to it over the next few days as well as adding all of the goodies.
The frame is made out of 40mm x 40mm box tubing with 50mm x 50mm flat steel tabs welded on the insides so the timber can be screwed into.
It is 910mm high, 700mm wide and the total length of the main bench is 9640mm long. The smaller bench is the same height and width but is 2100mm long. The set of storage draws are 1000mm high, 2100mm long and 600mm wide.
The timber is all laminated with pine on the bottom shelf at 18mm thick and hard wood for the top at 30mm thick and is 750mm wide.
As more gets done I will update as I go.
