I recently picked up two solid core wooden doors 36" x80". They are very he
avy and I am planning on laying them end to end for the top of a heavy duty
work bench I want to construct in my garage. I also have several six inch
in diameter PVC tubes that I am planning on using as stands for the workben
ch. I will have six of these with two on each end corner and the two doors
setting on two pillars in the middle. I will be filling them with premixed
concrete from LOWES or one of the big box stores. I work from a wheel chair
so I am not going to build as high as most people would need. Have any of
you ever used a concrete leg for a bench? If so did you like it or would yo
u go the traditional wood frame route if you had to do it again? I may even
mount a 9" x 20" metal lathe on the top somewhere so I need to make sure v
ibration is to a minimum.
All advice appreciated.
