Rebuilt workbench.
Posted by rocketman2000 on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 9:31 AM

I recently finished the rebuild of my workbench.  The bench is a homemade top resting on two storage drawers from an office supply store.  I used to have a plastic drawer unit imbedded in the pegboard, but I needed more tool space.  I made a rack for those drawers in a new top for the backboard.  I also made larger pegboards for the side panels.  Ony downside was buying more pegboard hooks.  The QC of the new stuff is terrible.  The distance between the mounting pins varies by at least a sixteenth of an inch in both directions, requiring reaming of bottom hole for most of them

The permanent top is particle board- two pieces .5 thick seperated by 1 x 2 girders to stiffen it.  I cover the top with white contact paper which I replace about every two or three builds.  Top is 18 by 48.   Replaced the contact paper after the rebuild of the pegboard panels, that is why it so clean.
