Noob from Texas

Hello all. I am very new to woodworking but I have gained some valuable information from these forums on building my first workbench. I just wanted to introduce myself and look forward to getting to know everyone. I used a plan out of an issue of The Family Handyman to build this. I used a solid core door from Home Depot and a 3/4 sheet of plywood that was on sale there. I trimmed it out with pine and pegboard. It's not perfect but I am pretty proud of it and I learned quite a bit as this was the first substantial thing I've ever built.

I thought I would share some pictures since you guys pretty much helped me with every aspect of this thing...

I installed the 9" Quick Release Vise & flip down Workbench casters from Rockler.

Welcome from Texas !!!

Welcome to the forum.

Wonderful job on that workbench.
Solid core doors make great benchtops.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Welcome Adrian. That's a very impressive first project. Heck it's an impressive 10th project. Looks like it'll give you years of service, and if you get real serious with craft and build another workbench, that one will still see plenty of glue-ups and other projects.

You can never have enough clamps or work surfaces.
