This is an easy way to make a really nice workbench table for your shop by using left over or orphaned laminate flooring. We had a left over box of flooring from a job 10 years ago and I needed a larger workbench. Problem solved!
The frame was made from 15 2x4s and attached with bronze deck screws. It is very strong and holds a small band saw, scroll saw, grinder, two swing arm lamps, and for a while a Harbor Freight lathe. It's a great painting platform and wipes up easy for accidental spills.
Extra boxes of laminate flooring can be found online, at discount flooring outlets, or through Craigslist/eBay. And often at super discounted prices or sometimes free.
The video shows the whole build.
