Heres my workbench so far, still need to poly, paint, and add the casters on the feet. Everything you see that isn't stained will be painted a antique white. Its a little bulky looking, i framed everything first then trimmed it, should be nice and strong.

I don't know about the snakes or frogs, but I have a motion sensor sprinkler head that scares away almost everything else.... birds, deer, cats, etc. Not sure if it will help you but it did for me.

It sprays water and makers that loud noise every time it goes off.

Is there a fence around the pool area to keep out the larger rodents? All the other critters you just need to deal with on a daily basis. Check the pool in the AM and scoop out all the dead animals. There is not much else you can do. PS Check the skimmer in the AM as well. Lots of the dead ones wind up in the skimmer basket.


On another note I have to seal the driveway this weekend. I have filled in all the cracks and cleaned the driveway. Just need to blow it off before I seal it. Going to use the best sealer Lowes has and do 2 coats. Hope it lasts 3 to 4 years. My driveway is on an incline so water flows down the driveway causing the sealant to wear down quicker than a level driveway.

That's cool. I really like that idea... Might have to do the same thing. Can you give some details on materials used?

Thanks. The thing i like about it that is different will be the removable casters. The legs are hollow, im going to mount the casters on small pieces of 2x6 which will have a 4x4 "peg" that slides inside the hollow leg. Lift the table up and the casters fall out. The idea came from wanting it to be a beer pong table and workbench. Beer pong table should be 27"-30" tall, which IMO is to low for a workbench. My table is at 30", and with the casters it will be 36 1/2".
I can give you a a full material list, even detailed plans if you want them, but heres the basics.

2x4 framed platforms for upper and lower plywood
2x6 legs
1 sheet oak plywood (27" rip for top, 21" rip for storage platform)
1x6 oak for trimming table top
1x8 and 1x6 primed FJ pine for triming legs and lower half of table
ZAR wood filler in red oak (makes your seems disappear )
English chestnut minwax stain
Helmsman clear satin poly
Rustoleum neverwet TBD, gatta see how it effects the color/shine of the poly

Great job on that bench. It looks great. Looks like a dining room table instead of a work bench!

nice! i'm in the process of building a workbench as well, the more i got into building the frame the more i realized (duh) weight/heft is "good" because you want it to stay put when working on it! ...not going to be as long as yours though... what does she weigh in at?

My guess is 125 lbs, maybe a little more, its pretty heavy. 97.5" long and 28.5" wide. It made a awesome beer pong table last weekend, still gatta do the casters on the legs. And like you guys said now that its done i don't want to abuse it to much lol, so it might be a light duty work bench. Or ill just throw a piece of plywood on top when i work on my grill projects and stuff

Well, I've been working non stop on my condo remodel. Here is some of the most recent work.





Walls and ceilings have been scraped, textured, and painted; the old floor is out, slab is level, and new floor is in;lights are all in; cabinets have been reworked to include the microwave, and have the first coast of paint on.

I'm concentrating on the kitchen right now. I am going to patch some of the spots on the interior cabinet wall that stick out now that there is gloss paint on. Then it's on to painting and mounting the cabinet doors, and probably a hundred other things before it's completely finished. Ha
