Diy woodworking bench is not only central for the physical place it occupies. But for the importance it acquires in any workshop. As indicated in the discussion of how to delimit the work areas. And specifically the central space of the workshop at home. It is highly recommended that. If possible, a distinction be made between a “clean” area and a “dirty” area. Each of them equipped with a work bench of its own. In another post we have already explained to you how the layout of the workspaces has to be. As we have point out in previous posts, the clean workbench will be used to perform jobs that leave little waste. The handling of files, saws, rules and measuring instruments, lathes, drills … And work with materials such as wood, stones or metals will be carried out in the clean work area and, therefore, in the clean bench.
The maintenance and cleaning of this diy woodworking bench must be scrupulous and detailed to avoid accidents, inconveniences and the performance of works with results that do not meet our expectations. This bank will be specified, in turn, in the dirty area, that is. The one destined to work with liquids, paints, solvents … That require having a water intake and a drain at hand. The cleaning of this bank should also be constant. But obviously it will never reach the clean bank level. As we said, a workshop without a work bench is meaningless. Its height, its dimensions, its robustness and the material with which it is made will be decisive. The work table: we can use a recycled table, preferably of solid or solid wood, similar to the extra dining tables, adapted to a height of 70 cm-90 cm (depending on the height of the workshop).
And with a surface suitable to make drawings, schemes, marking of pieces … In it we will also lodge the elements and tools that we need in a recurrent way while we are doing some work, to have them at hand at all times. The diy woodworking bench: as its name indicates, it will work basically with wood and its substitutes. It will occupy the central part of the bank as a whole. And can be used as a mediator between the mechanic bank and the work table. It is also recommended, if you do not have them. That we install some drawers to store gloves, tapes, rags, nails, screws and small pieces of frequent use.
