Here is a quick pic of the new shop space. I was looking for a better place to post this here but can't seem to find one.
You all might recognize the Harbor Freight work bench there. I have three of them. One is older and dinged up and will now just serve as counter space on the wall, and to mount my drill press to. The other two are new, placed back to back in the center, and I will shim them to be level with each other for a large work surface. We just built those last night. I was hoping for a better fit but it seems the tops are not going to be exactly even with each other from end to end. I also noticed my old one had a finish on it that seems slicker than these two. They just feel like sanded, unfinished wood. Any suggestions on that? Coat of wax, or even a finish?
For now I will use these to get me started again, but I have dreams of a large super bench, maybe full plywood sheet width, and at least 6 feet long, and dead flat from end to end. I was hoping to use it to help square up cabinet type furnishings as I build them. It might still work, once I get everything shimmed and any high spots dealt with (plane it out, maybe even add a shop made top over them).
