I’m still actually in the process of building my first shop, in my tiny basement. I’m an electrician for a town here in Massachusetts, and we work in all the town buildings. December 2016, I’m in the kitchen at the high school, and hear the kitchen manager talking about how they have to get rid of their 8 foot, by 30 inch, wooden work tables because under the states new guide lines, wooden tables are porous and can’t be used in any of the towns kitchens. I got two of these tables (I only kept the butcher block table tops), they make awesome bench tops. The price was free, and they thanked me for getting rid of them, for them. They go about 100-120 pounds, needed my son to help me get them into the basement.
The clock of life is wound but once.
