This workbench uses reclaimed timber from a tenpin bowling lane for a sturdy top.

The project

 

I made a mobile workbench and incorporated my table saw.

The saw blade can be changed the same way as it always was. No restrictions at all.

I changed the top from MDF to a reclaimed tenpin bowling lane and it's super strong.

Spectacular workbench @hazesnow ! I love that you reused a tenpin lane to create the countertop! Are there any other types of upcycled material you would suggest for the table top?

@KatieC you could use an old flat exterior solid core door if you have one lying around! I used the bowling lane because my husband works at one! 
depending on what area you live in I know in Victoria they are closing down a bowling centre somewhere just not sure exactly where..

Great insider tip @hazesnow I am sure there will be a few community members keen on it!

Very lucky you have a husband to provide such a cool feature. 

I look forward to seeing more of your projects 😊

Hey, how do you find the ozito table saw, I’m thinking of getting one and building it into a bench like you have.

Hi @mickviller

 

Let me call on @hazesnow to make them aware of your question. It would be great to get an independent review of the table saw and find out how it's been holding up. 

You can also look at the ratings people have given the tool at the bottom of the product page - Ozito 2000W 254mm Table Saw.

 

If you have any other questions regarding the table saw, please don't hesitate to post them.
