Build a Plywood Workbench with Torsion Box Technology Top

Part 1 - Buildling the Base (the WorkbenchTop is further down this page)
I.m sure there is nothing more personal to a woodworker than their own workbench. I have never seen 2 the same unless they were purchased from a pre-manufactured company, and I have only ever seen a few of those. Everyone has their own special requirements and I am no different. The workbench I have been using was built as a "temporary workbench" over 20 years ago, so it's time to build my dream workbench.

When I scoured the Internet looking at workbenches, I was trying to find workbenches made from plywood and there are very few of them. I had an idea for using plywood that I could make a workbench that was very strong yet much lighter than usual and still offer all the advantages of much heavier workbenches ... but mine would have wheels and be easy to move around the workshop.

How to Build a Woodworking Workbench: Scale Model Prototype

It's finally that time for me.  Long, long overdue for me to replace my workbench. It was quickly thrown together as a “temporary” workbench about 23 years ago and has followed me on 3 house moves including 2 complete disassemble and re-assembles and still, I am using it. It has worked well for the most part but it's time to replace it with something more up-to-date and with some accessories I can add on over time.

I have been researching and putting thoughts together on a new workbench for some time and have come up with a simple design I like. The new design is very similar in looks to what I currently have but with some changes for the better ... 

A Primer to Epoxy Resin Wood Projects / Simple River Tables

Epoxy Resins have been used in woodworking for a few years and are becoming more and more popular because of the increasing number of ideas and situations that they can be used in to enhance our woodworking projects. In some cases they are used to make new and interesting projects, in others they are used to extend the strength or volume of wood by making projects larger by incorporating resins in them.

Working with 2 part epoxy resins is not an inexpensive alternative in woodworking but more like an investment in creativity. Epoxy resins are not inexpensive to purchase so if you are using them you will want to make sure you use them wisely and effectively, and that is really the purpose of this article and video ... to give those who are interested in experimenting with resins a better idea how the work and what to expect ... 

Folding Extension Arms of a Sliding Miter Saw Station

One of the challenges of working in a small workshop is keeping enough room to move and build things without having machinery taking up the bulk of the room. Having machines on wheels is one way of accomplishing this, but there are other ways of economizing on space, which is what I am doing with these collapsible arms on my sliding miter stand.

Several months ago when I was looking for locking steel arms that were also collapsible when I was building my outfeed table for the table saw, I found some very strong arms that I liked, that also came in 2 sizes. At the time of buying them, I realized that not only would this design work for my table saw outfeed table, but also for my sliding miter stand.
