3 in 1 Workbench - Part 1

In this tree part blog I will show my exploits into creating a 3 in 1 workbench.

I was planning to add a router to it too but I want that one to stay “mobile” and I don’t have a spare one lying around 😄.

As I need to do some sawing and routing for this project and I want to do it all myself, I also wanted
to create my own workbench to do this with.

I have lots of tools in my shed and some of them double through inheritance and gifts.
I was inspired by some movies on the internet and I thought I had all the tools needed to do it.
