I’m being evicted from my garage (it’s going to be come our lounge 😉 ) in the near future. Add to this, my bench is a good 50 years old, and was the “apprentice bench” in the joiner’s shop my dad used to work in. It’s a bit long, not too stead on it’s feet, and it needs re-surfacing….
So I started watching the workbench videos on Youtube, and now now I’m costing up the wood to make a new bench for the shed I shall be chucked into…
As far as I can see I need the following bits:
Two Tops, each: 6 of 47mmx75mmx2.4m
Two Aprons, each: 3 of 47mmx75mmx2.4m
Four legs each: 2 of 47mmx100mmx1000m
Two top Rails each: 1 of 47mmx100mmx1000mm
Two Bottom Rails each: 1 of 47mmx100mmx1000mm
Two bearers each: 1 of 47mmx100mmx1000mm
One “well bottom” each: 3 of 100mmx19mmx2.4m
Pricing this out at B&Q I get to 4 packs of 5 47mmx75mmx2.4m, 2 packs of 4 47mmx100mmx2.4m and 3 100mmx19mmx2.4m which comes out at ~£182
I have a local timber merchant who I’ll probably use to get more sensible lengths (1.8m rather than 2.4m since it will be going into an 8ftx6ft shed I expect) which may even bring the cost down a bit.
Does that seem reasonable?
Am I missing anything?
