My New Loading Bench had a Baby

I was so pleased with the look and feel of my $99 Rural King workbench that I bemoaned not buying 2. Long story short, I found a stack of bench kits at Rural King this Sunday for $64.93 each...so NOW I bought 2. I wanted to see how long it would take to put one together without assistance (and since my wife wasn’t home). About an hour for the frame. The drawers will likely take another 1/2 hour.

With the wood vise removed from both benches they fit nicely side by side. My powder shelf and portable drawer set didn’t have to move.

Nice! jealous of the beautiful wood, harbor freight bench is very similar but not as pretty.

Finished the drawers. They are different on this table - metal, vs carved wood. Hard to say which I prefer, but helps to set the tables apart. The bottom shelf is also more rigid, but I’ll still add lateral supports underneath. Lithe artificial lighting makes the new table appear much darker...it isn’t. But it’s definitely empty. Gotta find something to clutter it up.
