Pretty easy workbench

After looking at a few of the designs on this board. I found a good site that was similar to some of the builds here and had some easy to ready plans: https://www.bitterrootdiy.com/diy-mobile-workbench-with-table-saw-miter-saw/

 

I need to do some work around the table saw, get a dust extractor setup and probably a lot more. But pretty happy so far.

Ignore the dodgy workmanship. Still learning.

Alright, finally getting around to giving you more details. They will be lacking, because I have a horrid memory but I'll try.

I used treating pine for the frame, mdf for the bottom shelf and..... Something that I can't remember for the top shelf. I recall the Bunnings guy suggesting it and stating that it was used in concreting. No problems so far. 

 

I predominately followed the instructions in the linked post but made small changes here and there to fit my tools.

For example, I cut a bit out of the frame to allow for the table saw's arms to slide through. I may have used two shelves where the table saw is because I mis-measured. Measure once, be a dunce?

 

I'll upload pics with my mobile soon to show what I mean for the small changes.

 

For someone who knows what they're doing, I would say this is < then a days work. Me, it took about 2.5 days of mediocre effort and poor measuring.
