How to Build a Heavy Duty Workbench

How to Build a Heavy Duty Workbench

This weekend we built the first of four heavy duty workbenches for the OPC workshop!┬áThis project was very simple, and the design works not only for a workbench (as we’re using it), but also for sturdy storage shelves in a basement or garage.
