This is the second version of this bench. I disassembled the first version to make this one. I had a tool well in the middle of my last bench and found it to be a hassle. Picture one shows the bench with a filler in the split and the tool wells. I added a small one at the back right corner for pencils and tape measures. Pictures 2 and 3 show the filler rotated 180 degrees so it can be used as a planing stop. Picture 4 shows the tail vice and the small tool well I will house pencils and tape measures. If i need to clamp something through the center split, i just need to lift out the filler piece. I glued in spacers to add rigidity but also think that i could store chisels or my dovetail saws there if i am working on a project and want them close by.
Legs are cedar 4×4s
Top is laminated 2×4s
The tool well is black locust and hardboard, the black locust was left over from some raised beds i made.
