A Beginners Garage Workshop

I got into woodworking last October, when I started on a new workbench for the garage. I found that working with wood and tools was a lot of fun.

Attached are photos from when I first started until yesterday when I completed the router table.

Any comments, suggestions would be welcome.

Fred, think about making a couple of these router bit/drill bit cabinets.
Safety first then fun.

I will implement most of the suggestions pretty soon, especially the safety related one and post photos.

Cheers !!

Hi, Fred.

It looks like you had a lot of work to get your garage shop and It is nice that you decided to improve safety and the suggestions given for all those members.

I´d recommend to take car of all those cables laying around. They are an invitation for an accident.

After that, have a lot of fun!!!
The Duckboards were needed due to my first mistake. You can't see from the photos, but the workbench is on top of a raised floor. The floor is raised about 2" for the the back 3' of the garage, the exact size of the bench.

I read that the bench should be 36" high, so that is the way I built it. Standing on the floor in front of the bench, the effective height is 38" .. uncomfortable for me.
So you built them to 36", which must've been good for you, and that raised section of the garage makes them too tall?

Why not cut 2" off the bottom of each leg and get back to your comfortable 36" height?
