Thanks Larry. Completely new benchwork. Things I did different this time: using 1 x 6 girders, not 1 x 4, for more stability, and to keep the module more level. I found that the 1 x 4 girders had sagged. Also I went back to good old plywood for surface, instead of MDF. Once MDF absorbs any amount of water, it is structurally compromised. Plywood has the ability to absorb a great deal of water without being compromised. There is just no substitute for plywood as a durable surface.

Wow Arthur, you didn't waste any time, great start. I think you will be happier with the plywood instead of the MDF. Can'y agree with Les about the foam though as my layout is built on the stuff. Although I will admit it is framed by 4" x 3/4" furniture grade plywood.

Bravo for your new start, Arthur. While it's always difficult to decide to go new, I think we're seldom disappointed by such a decision.
Nicely finished structure for the layout.
