Very new woodworker. My only other woodworking project was making a coffee table at school which my parents used for many years.

I am a keen collector of vintage Meccano; listen to lots of music and enjoy concerts. I read a lot and enjoy cooking (and unfortunately) eating.

I am recently retired from Telecoms industry and have started a new career in IOS app design.

Workbench from 'Getting Started in Woodwork' UK

I have always wanted a sturdy workbench but have got by for the last 30 years using a B&D workmate, so as I have recentlly retired decided to build one.  The Fine woodworking video's and PDF plans...

Re: Still don't have a workbench? This one is easy

Great plans and instructional video's. Have made bench (just bench dog holes to complete). The frame is very sturdy and top seems like it will be a good surface to work on although suspect it will get easily stained / marked.

As I am in UK needed to convert everything to metric and could not source the table top fasteners so I made some 'buttons' instead which work well.

Will post some pictures and give a bit more info for anyone else building in the UK.
