Was thinking of purchasing the kit from the 2X4 Basics company that has 4
legs (appear to be quite strong from pix ?) to be used in constructing a
home work bench.
You supply the 2x4's that bind the legs together, as well as a table top.
The legs look very well made, and it seems that this would perhaps be a
approach than using two saw-horses for supports, or possibly building the
out of a bunch of 2x4's
Sells for about $65
Anyone ever use them ?
I've used their shelf kit which I believe uses the same bracket. Shelves
came out very strong and it was easy to build.
For a workbench, I used a kit from Simpson Strong-tie that uses metal
brackets. It too was strong and easy to build. Quite a bit cheaper too
You buy a work bench to work on. That mean you are handyman type of guy,
right? Build one. Amazing how nice you can with a couple of 2 x 4's, a few
1 x 6's for the frame and a sheet of 3/4" birch plywood. The pride of doing
it yourself far outweighs any cost involved. Email me if you want a picture
