New Workbench Surface

I've been slowly organizing my tools and improving my workspace.  Doesn't make for very interesting blog posts, but it's getting me closer to resuming the project.

Tonight I finished resurfacing the workbench with some fresh MDF.  I cut the board to size and now I have a nice, level work surface.  Much better than the rough 2x6 planks that were there before.  I also added some cross-beams to stabilize the bench.  It's solid now.

Stacey was a trooper last week helping me carry the heavy sheets into the basement.

I think it would be a good idea to cover the surface with plastic.  I think MDF will soak up any liquids that spill on it, and that will ruin the surface.  Post a comment if you have any suggestions for what to use over the MDF!
