New here and to wood working

Hello my name is Gary and I'm looking to build a work station I found out. Her but need the measurements and some more help. Geek something is the one that built it. I'm from Kentucky by the way.

Geek "something" is the one that built it.

In the future reread your post in the Post Preview window so it makes more sense and has more detailed info. You'll have to give us more to go on than that.
Do you have a sketch or a link to GeeK somethings site?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Welcome to the forum! Kentucky is the home of pretty girls and fast horses. Or is the other way around?
Used to live in Louisville and Washington County, KY. And yes, the grass is blue!

Hey guys sorry about that. I don't have a link or sketch. The guys user name is geek gone bad. I want to build the bench that he did but like I was trying to say I'm new and need some details on the build.
I think it's a matter of how you look at it whether the the horses are fast and the girls are pretty, or the horses are pretty and the girls are fast. Lol. Either way yes the grass is blue.

You can also find workbench designs on Pinterest.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

What kind of work station. One for the shop or one for the office? Big difference.
Yep, need more info. Pictures and/or links would be helpful.

You can start by taking your measuring stick and determine what the comfortable working height is you want to end up with. Everything else would be figured from that number.

He gave a link to the Sketchup plans. I opened it and took a few measurements.

If you don't have Sketchup, get it. It's free. Search for "Google Sketchup"

Install it and you should be good to go.

Download the plan. It is a compressed file. Click on the file and select "Open". It will launch Sketchup and open the drawing.
