I spent some time looking for a workbench that I could build for my father-n-law as a retirement gift. Luckily, I found a number of completed workbenches from members on this site. I built the workbench based on the 21st Century design by Robert Lang. The bench is built out of ash. The Dimensions are 90” L x 31”W x 34” H.

That is a nice bench and I’m sure that he must have been thrilled.

Nice looking bench. Wish I had a son-in-law that wanted to build me a bench like that. That’s kind of impossible since I only had boys. lol

How about more detail pictures? I wanted to know what the inside of the trays looked like. Also wanted to know over all dimensions and approximate weight.

Looks like you’ve got a nice shop. What does your workbench look like? Or was this a prototype piece for your bench?

That is one stunning workbench.
I’ve got serious “equipment lust” now.

Nice work!

I’ve been using a 21CWB for 5-6 years, there’s nothing you can’t do with it. Your FIL is going to love it!
