Just finished this workbench. Made from hard maple. I used 2 1 3/4” maple butcher block tops and glued them together for a 3 1/2” thick top. First time to make hand made half-blind dovetails. Trestle is drawbore mortise and tenons. 2 Veritas vises with leather lined jaws. Finish is Danish Oil. Long overdue…
