I built my workbench using Douglas Fir glulams about 7 years ago.
The dimensions are 60" x 30" x 4". It also has a protective edge of
1.5" Jarrah, dowelled and screwed to the Douglas Fir. I also gave it
several applications of diluted raw linseed oil.
I have used it for everything, - ...boat building .... mechanical
repairs on motorcycles, ... cutting and welding .... and more.
Currently I'm building new kitchen cabinets for SWMBO.
I have not yet found the need to re-finish the surface, - just a
twice yearly application of raw linseed- it seems to get better with
If I were to build another bench, I would use the same material
