Hello! Just joined this site...I am beginner woodworker who had ZERO interest in this when younger (I would hold the flashlight or tools for my Dad and that was the extent of any wood working!). In my 50s now and it has become my new hobby! Oh so how I wish I learned more from my Dad! I did keep a lot of his tools but wish I had more.
Anyway, I have built a few simple things so far (small tables) and I'm trying to learn as much as I can even by trial and error! I am now trying to begin building a shoe and boot bench: trying to determine if I make a part of the sitting area about 55 inches wide, using 2, 2x10s, it will be strong enough and won't sag? (Entire length of this woukd be 90") Thought the 2x10s would be strong enough. Any thoughts are appreciated! (I have attached a pic of what I am trying to make.)
