Default Saying Hi

Hi all, I am kind of new to woodworking, at least with my own personal tools. Although, I recently solved the nagging problem of "where to put my beer", by building a 8' workbench (hopefully the picture attached). Now that I have figured that out I think its time to aim a little higher and figure out even more places to set my Sierra Nevada as I work...

A little about myself: live in Oklahoma, an AF Vet, currently a student of aviation at OU, and hope to learn plenty more by being more active with the router forums.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Izza. Nice workbench.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Nice job for a new work bench. I am in the process of building a new workbench and was wondering where you purchased your 'corner braces'?

I bought them from Lowes, they are called USP 4-in x 2-in Corner Tie. Writen on the box at Lowes it also shows RTC24 but in small print.

At HD they are Simpson Strong-Tie RTC24 18-Gauge 2x4 Rigid Tie Connector.

I actually went to three stores trying to find eight of them, before trying Lowes and getting their brand. Either or, it seems they make for an extremely stable table.

Thanks to you and everyone else for the warm welcome.

I notice your name and have to say I went to Terrapin Crossroads, in San Rafael, a couple months back for Sunday brunch and a concert. I found it to be a wonderful place with awesome food and excellent brew - if you haven't been or don't live in CA, its totally worth the trip out. Phil Lesh was playing that night, but I was a little late in trying to get tickets; hopefully I can score some this year.

What thickness of ply did you use?
And of course the beer is for after working with the power tools.
