Hi,I'm planning on building a workbench but for the tabletop I'm considering glueing pinewood panels and additionally securing them with dowels instead of the option you took here to glue boards and secure them with rods. I figured that the glueing process would be simpler and I don't have long clamps that I would need to secure the boards during the glueing process. The pinewood panels are not expensive and I can stack four of them to make a 62 mm (2.44 inches) tabletop which sounds sturdy enough to me. My question is if you can see any reason against this approach.Thanks!
The build looks good, but is the grinder weather-proof? Seems like an odd place to place a workshop electrical tool.
Great stuff! Loved the idea of stuffing the boards and disks inside the desk but then I read that comment about interferences. Maybe that could be solved with a metal grid box. It wouldn't interfere with cooling but would hopefully work as a Faraday cage. Additionally you could also include some liquid cooling system to make it all the more quiet. I don't care much for the black, though, but that's a matter of taste. I understand that using some good looking wood would make it more expensive.
Good job, very clearly explained.
Hi. Nice project, I didn't expect the MDF could be made to look so clean. Why did you do the shelves in OSB? Was it because it is cheaper, for aesthetic reasons, some other reason?
I'm not sure if it would be possible to pull it off, but you could have tried to cut the top and bottom panels on the borders so that they would fit inside the box, leaving the wood veneer intact to cover the edges of the front and back panels. I hope you get my meaning, I realize my explanation may be a bit confusing.
Scratch 15, replace with 20!
I thought you were going to explain how to avoid spending 15 euros in a Cointreau bottle. I stopped mixing margaritas because it's such an expensive cocktail. And you missed the salt in the rim of the glass in the video.
Love it! I can already see a world of possibilities
