Rust removal of the workbench

I decided to clean up the workbench before major overhaul.

What a messy work! The wire cup was shooting wires all over the place like spikes. Anyone who plan to use it, make sure wearing safety glasses and protection clothes.

The top surface of the workbench is concave towards the center near 10 mm of level drop compared to the edges. Also it has only two to two and half millimeter of thickness so that it’s hard to do precision work on this workbench.

I’ll reinforce the top surface using three pine lumbers and make it flat surface.
