I was bored this weekend, and thinking more about shop layout. I am very happy so far with the first EAA workbench I built, but I want another one against the wall in my garage, to have some space for a bench grinder, bandsaw, and drill press. As you can see from the pictures, I added 2 additional shelves (for a total of three). The top two are spaced at 6 inches (5.25 after adding 3/4″ plywood/MDF) and the bottom one was fitted so the 2×4 crossbrace is on the floor (even with the bottom of the main support leg, a couple inches off the floor after adding casters.)
See the nice workbench in the background? That's the new one.
Here's a closeup. Notice the two extra shelves? That should be nice to store some airplane parts. Also, take note of the $20 swivel stool purchased from Northern Tool. I couldn't resist. Sorry. Also, please forgive the top shelf. I ran out of MDF, so I had to put the scrap pieces there for the sake of the picture. Again, please accept my apologies.
