Part 1 - Legs and Frame All of the talk around here about making benches reminded me that I've planning to build one. I have some old table legs sitting around. I have been watching the 8020 store on eBay and I've been picking up pieces for this bench for 18 months. So, getting down to business, the first task was to rebate the legs to hold the frame. The next task was to make 4 corner brackets for the frame. With the frame and legs bolted together, this bench feels rock solid. Next is the sub frame to hold the MDF top in place.

An 8020 Work Bench I have the details and lots of pictures posted here at talkFestool. No use posting it twice. Actually, I've been unsuccessful trying to join there because what is believed to be blocking twice now by my ISP for the registration confirmation email, and as a result cannot view the pictures you've got over there. Has anybody else had this problem registering at TalkFestool? Kevin, I haven't see the email, but... Are you saying that you're trying to forward mail from your BlackBerryto to your PC and it's not working? In any case, I activated your account. Regards, Dan. Hey that's great Dan. Sorry for the thread stealing, but I really did want to see what Qwas had to show, and I guess I was frustrated that since you had be a member at TF to see the pictures, I thought I'd voice my issue, which is now resolved. Qwas, I really like what you did, and have been formulating ideas on how to modify my 1080 in certain manners, and your work was of interest.
