So, it was a cold and breezy weekend. Wanted to be outside doing stuff, and out of the wind at the same time. Lucky for me, I had a project in my back pocket just waiting for the right combination of weather and available time! Also lucky for me, the shed door opens to the south, so I was out of the wind, and able to enjoy the warm sunshine while I worked.
I try to keep my flammables in the shed - gas, diesel, paint, and certain tools - chainsaw, peavy, generators, etc... The existing shelves were full, and I just wasn't getting the best use out of the space. A workbench with room to stow things underneath sounded like a good start.
I make no claims of carpentry expertise, but I had fun making it, and I don't think it will fall down. I tried to use up some scrap 2x4's I had laying around, but did use new 2x6's for the top due to the required length.
Here is the first step - installing the short and long wall supports.
