I used to do all my assembly work on a workbench that had a double-layer plywood top.At the time of building that workbench, I had never heard of a torsion box workbench.The old plywood top lasted for years and along the way, I noticed that it was not as flat as I once thought it was.
I would like to believe that when I originally built it, it was nice and perfect.But who really knows.I don't for sure since I threw it together pretty quick one night when I needed some additional workspace for building wooden toys, which was my hobby at the time.
So fast forward to today.Now that old plywood workbench has turned into my main bench with drawers, but I don't do final assembly there for my furniture.I need a good flat, level top for that.And that's where the torsion box workbench comes in.
I originally got the idea from Marc over at The Wood Whisperer, which is also where I learned what a torsion box is.So I drew up some quick plans, built one myself, and here it is: The box was constructed with 1/2″ MDF, 3/4″ birch plywood, and hardboard.
