Description

Workbench with non-slip concrete worktop of 200.0*80.0 cm
Frame of sturdy planed Douglas wood beams (planed, net size 95*95 mm)
Height at construction adaptable to body size and desired working height
Raised edge at the rear, so that nothing falls between the workbench and the wall

Custom workbench

Order worktop of 18 mm anti-slip concrete plywood at OPMAATZAGEN.nl in size 200.0*80.0 cm, apply the rounded side where you wish.
Order 2x strips of 80*10 cm, 1x 200*10 cm to protect the edge of the sheet to be thickened from the bottom and a strip of 200*20 for the upright back wall

Cut planed Douglas beams to size (4x 160 cm, 4x 50 cm, 4x leg in desired length). Good perpendicular sawing! This promotes stability.
Sand the beams and place them in Douglas oil at least twice to protect against moisture.
Assemble the frame upside down with 18 cm long counter head screws (Tip: use the bottom for this). of the worktop. This is a nice flat area to work on). Drill the holes well straight.
Mount rubber tile supports (10*10*1 cm) on the underside of the legs (against rising damp).
Put the frame upright, mount the raised edge at the rear. Adjust the height of the raised edge as desired.
Center the worktop and secure it from the bottom. For example, use angle irons or choose to seal the top with high tack kit
If necessary, mount sockets on the front so that cables never get in the way of the work you want to do.

Have fun working on your new workbench!
