Side Rails will be redwood 2×6 and a 2×4 glued up. Wasn’t my first choice but I did have the wood already. If I beat up the tops that bad.. I’ll probably just glue one some hardwood… or… make another one. :)
Here’s the star of the workbench!!!!
I found a wilton vise on craigslist, no use, The guy had it sitting outside. The jaws are 10 inches wide… and it opens up to 12 inches. This is going on one side of my bench.
I can’t really tell which model this one is.. BUT, if its the one I think it is… then I scored HUGE!!!... Actually… either way I look at it.. I got a great deal. only 60 bucks.
