Re: Bench Work Fframing
I built my bench work the same way (plywood with end blocks) except I pre-drilled 3-4 sets of holes through the cross members (stacked them and drilled multiple at a time) to hold wires prior to assembly. Then we set up an assembly line screwing and glueing the blocks (2”x2”) onto the cross members. Then final assembly was super fast.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Bench work has been up for 16 years and not one issue .... and it is super strong.
The upper deck we used 1/2” plywood instead of 3/4” and reduced it to 3” vs 4” and used shelf brackets and metal 3/4” 90 degree angle iron as a front support across the shelf brackets and notched the cross members. Super solid.
Everything is assembled with “drywall“ screws. And you don’t even need to pre-drill. No wood splitting.
It’s the fastest bench work I have ever used and assembled.
