This is my version of the $175 Workbench, published about a decade ago in Popular Woodworking.

I have chronicled the ins and outs of the construction in a blog series. See there for more details, including a post-mortem in the last entry of mistakes I made.

A good looking bench that will provide many years of service. I saved that issue too.

Well done, lefty! Interesting to see those vices on the other side in a world of righthanders.
