    Default Project 4 from d3javoodoo *Work Bench*

    Hello again...
    Here are a hand full of photos of a recent desk I built that was well overdue. Including the P/U of materials, preparing materials, fitting, welding, & finish this simple yet effective desk only consumed 8, 1/2 hrs. Of my time since the legs were refurbished from an older desk that I refused to just scrap.... The stock used was 1.5" x 3/16wall flat Crs scrap I had laying around, & 6 cuts of red oak from home depot. The legs were recycled 2"x3/4" sq. Hollow 1/16wall tube. The desk measures 33,1/4"x6'x32,3/4". I was extremely motivated to upgrade my desk due to a lack of worktop space... The only thing I feel is missing now are drawers, which I'm considering building separate then bolting on. But for now I've got the space I need to start my next series...

    what do you use the desk for? the way you built it i really like it, if you bolted the top down you should make another top. out of steel and double the desk as a welding table. just an idea. from the looks of you u have enough space to add a removable bench vise to . you should check out my welding table (to heavy to move by my self which is always the case lol)

    I'm using this desk indoors for now for just about anything.... I tend to prefer wood when sculpting with wax, plaster, clay etc. or mold making. But right now the only thing on it is my notebook, printer, & some bills. As for metal work I've got a 3/4" steel plate table in the garage that's a beast (@least 400 - 500lbs). Years ago I got REAL lucky one day in picking up some scrap metal & came across it. As for this one, it is pretty solid... however I'm thinking it needs more(x4) supports for a little insurance. If you look at one of the pics you can clearly see there are only 2 vertical supports, & i'm thinking 4 more would help me sleep better...
