The first workbench for the MakerFX Shop has been completed this past week and it was a blast to build. A few members did research and settled upon a work bench design by Ron Paulk (link to plans: http://www.paulkhomes.com/order-plans.html) Normally the workbench breaks down into multiple, easily transportable to job sites, but for the shop itContinue Reading Paulk Style Workbench for the Woodshop Zone @ MakerFX
