Hello from OK
Pretty sure I've posted on here regarding a workbench, but I didn't introduce my self. My part time trade is actually Tile, but I really don't enjoy it as much as I do wood and I'm just barely getting started into working with wood. I've built a podium for my wife's classroom and most recently and workbench and some shelving. They aren't much, but I pretty sure two elephants could copulate on the workbench... lot's of 2x4's and 2x6's.
I do have a quick question, my workbench is 2' x 7'. I have built a collapsible, moveable island that will rest on a ledge that sandwiches it underneath the top. Currently i have a 2' piece of angle iron lag bolted into it, but I would like to have the ledge run the distance of the shelf. To do that should I use a longer piece of angle iron (subject to bending) or should I rip a piece of 2x4. If I use the ripped 2x4 should it be lag bolted or should I use 3" deck screws?
I will post pictures of it later so it will make more sense. Thanks for the help.
