Quick Work Bench Question
Just getting into woodworking, and building a 8x2x3 workbench with 2x4s and 3/4" plywood on top.
On each corner, the legs will be two 2x4s, and I was planning to cut out 1.75 or .75 of each board to allow the stretchers (width and length respectively) to be flush in the legs. Will that compromise the weight capacity of the bench or cause any other issues? Is there an ideal joint at the corners I should be using, that can be done by a total dummy with a jigsaw, circular saw, router and drill?
Appreciate the help!
