I wanted a woodworkers bench for my shop, but I didn’t want to buy one, so I got to work. Here is the result.

Very nice. What type of wood did you use?

The base is doug fir and 3/4” pine plywood. The top is doug fir planed to about 2 1/2” thick and topped with a hardwood top which was on sale at Woodcraft. The top is framed in oak. Screw holes are plugged with purple heart. The end vise is hard maple and the front vise is padauk. Vise handles are 1, hard wood dowel (unknown wood) with purple heart end caps (end vise), and, 2, cherrywood dowel with padauk end caps (front vise). I plan to build a drawer storage unit to fit inside the open area of bench.

Thanks for looking,

Spudhogg

Looks great. It all looks great especially the vises.

Uh, I hate to tell you, spudhogg, but the bench is backwards. :-)

Nice job, should serve you well. (Even if it is for a lefty)

JayT, Uh, if the end vise did not stretch the width of the bench, you would be correct. However, the bench was built for the specific spot it will occupy in the shop, and since it can be worked from either side. it works just fine…..even for a righty. Thanks for the comment, however.
