|Various wood scraps I have acquired|
Because I do not have a workbench yet, I have been using the wooden pallets (sometimes with a piece of the scrap plywood laying overtop) to do my cutting on. There are many reasons why this is not ideal for me, a fact that I am sure comes as no surprise. One of the biggest issues is that working that close to the ground does not make my back very happy. Additionally, these bits and pieces do not form a very level and stable surface which made it nearly impossible to get precise cuts. Of course since I was mainly warming up, and wasn't really making anything in particular, precision wasn't key. Thus, I have decided that before I can tackle any of my bigger projects, I am going to need some additional furnishings for my workshop, so I have decided to construct a simple small workbench.
