Table top, wagon vise and runners are mahogany and the legs are glued up southern yellow pine. The legs are a through Tennons. I rand 2 threaded rods through the table to help hold it tight. I was able to use some hand planes and a card scrapper to level and clean up the top. Took a while but I finnaly finished it!

Nice looking bench! I like the joinery. You’re going to enjoy it every time you’re in the shop.
Thanks for sharing!
