A few years ago I reorganized by shop and put an old workbench outside. The thought was to use it for a while, and then when it fell apart, just get rid of it. It had an OSB top, so I figured it wasn't going to last long.
Well, it actually survived a half dozen Northern California summers and winters - snow and freezing temperatures, and then in the 100's for a chunk of Summer. I did slap a coat of paint on the top once a year, but it finally gave up the coast. Since I've found the bench is great for all manner of things, I've decided to fix the base and put a new top on it.
I use it for woodworking, painting and just general piling upon. My first thought was just just get some 3/4 ACX, prime and paint both sides, and maybe put on some edge trim with epoxy and nails and paint that. But I'm open to ideas? Any thoughts? TIA!
