New Workshop

…in progress. This time I decided to make some furniture. Obviously there is nobody around who could help me in this – or who could is just not affordable for me, so after some research I decided to make my tables for myself. FYI I have NEVER ever made tables.

So I did the design and get the pieces. Some of them could be cut at hardware store, some of them – the legs – were just too thick, so I had to do it on my own, by hand and a 9 dollar saw.


This is my workshop. Not bad for one person, but I have to squeeze my ideas too.. 🙂

And this the parts of the very ambitious plan.

If someone want to build it:

1 tabletop (24 x 48)

4 legs (3 x 3 x 24) – if you are taller you can leave it slightly longer.

3 short pieces for the frame: (1 x 4 x 20) (Interesting fact: the pieces are NEVER the same as it is written on the label. My one inch thick piece was 3/4)

2 long pieces for the frame (1 x 4 x 44)

+ get a bunch of screw, a drill and wood glue.

I just put it together, just to see, if the measurements are OK or not.

As it seems fine, I start to assemble.

I added a little extra pieces on the sides, so my precious tools not gonna fall down and break.

This is the bottom of the desk. That little piece will hold the tabletop in its place, but it will be still removable.

Tomorrow I will post pics from the ready made desk.

The next plan is a cutting table, but I don’t know when.
