In this video: How I made a MEGA workbench out of reclaimed wood.

I remodeled an old barn last summer. While demolishing the interior I had a chance to recover some of the old lumber.

I stored it for a few months until I had time to build this woodworking bench. It weighs over 850 pounds and required 600 screws, 1 ½ gallons of wood glue, 44 9’x2”x6” Douglas fir, and about 40 hours to build

I hope I cover enough detail in this video to be helpful.

Thanks for watching!
