Wife is out of the house so I picked up some 2x4's and going to build my work bench. It will be just short of 12' wide, 2' deep and 37" high. I'll top the skeleton fram with 2 2x6's and 2 2x8's . That will give my a 4" overhang in front if I need to clamp something. I have an old antique (made of good cast Iron and solid as a rock) It's a Milwaukee number 55 heavy duty swivel bold down vice with small anvil. I'll completly break it down, sand, prime paint and make it look like a new penny.
Have to get after it because the wife and dog will be back soon so I need to get the frame built and attached to the wall/put support legs and level.
This will be fun. I know this is of no interest to anyone but me, but here's the before picture

Call the wife ask her to go to wally world to look for a board stretcher.

That’ll give ya enough time to build your bench. 😁😁

Like the pipe stretcher the driller told me to get at 3am across waiste deep frozen water and given a 150 lb chain to carry back as "the pipe stretcher". It sucked being a worm. Ha

WRONG!!! I'm interested! Just take care of yourself, young man. Don't overdo it!!!
Thanks. I'll post the finished product and leave it up for a short bit. I've already got 3 dings...ha. I'll post it on some other places for a short time as well. I just get a kick out of getting projects done.
