Default Hello from Brisbane

Hello all,

This is my first post.

I am currently giving my workshop a make-over & the next job to tackle is a new bench top.

My material of choice is trimber....but which timber?
I am leaning towards either hardwood or MDF.

Your comments will be appreciated.

Regards,

Richard.

Welcome Richard.

What you choose for your benchtop depends on what kind of work you think you'll be doing on it. I have a couple of benches with MDF tops, one with pineboard and two are steel. All are used for different purposes so work well for their intended applications so I keep anything wet or oily off the timber based tops so they stay flat, clean and dry.
