I’ve been wanting an official work bench for a while now. What have I been using since I started my woodworking journey in January you ask? Oh, just 3 of our 6ft folding party tables we use when we have events at our home. Not ideal, but they were the only thing I had that… Continue reading My New Work Bench!
