Up to now we’ve made good use of old desks and tables for our projects in the classroom barn, but under the guidance of teacher-carpenter Robin Chesnut-Tangerman we have built a sturdy workbench to make our projects easier to manage. We’re really proud of the end result!
Design came first, followed by measurements and cutting lists.
We took the drawers off an old desk and installed them at one end of the workbench. We bought a new lockable tool chest for the other end.
The boards for the shelving under the bench came from an old table that we tore apart, cut, and sanded. We also made shelves for the end wall. Underneath, we used flooring remnants to protect the old carpet.
