I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on what materials to use to build a decent workbench for hand-tool use? I know Chris Shwartz recommends framing-sized SYP but that seems to be impossible to find in Ontario... All I can find is SPF which is both soft and splinters. Maple and Ash are possibilities but I'm working with a rather limited budget.
No announcement yet.
What material for a budget workbench top?
