My very first woodworking project was to build a workbench. I chose a plan that would not bee too difficult for a beginner without a lot of tools but be sturdy enough to last. I then added a dual-screw tail vise.

Nice job.

I think you find the ledge around the table very useful for clamping your workpiece. Maybe even add or replace it to make it 1 1/2 – 2 inch overhang. I use mine for clamping stuff all the time.
