This is my work bench that I just finished putting together. The top is made out of construction grade 2×4’s and the legs are 4×4 Douglas fir. I planed the sides of the top and then glued them up. After scraping off the glue I flattened out the top using the Wood Whisperer used to flatten out his Roubo bench. If you follow his directions on how to set this up you will get one heck of a flat and level top. The only difference that I did was put spacers between the rails and top to make sure that I got all the way out to the edge when routing. I mortised and tenoned the rails on the legs and then put some pegs to strengthen the joint. The bench is rock solid and weighs a bout two hundred fifty pounds. I built it out of pine because of economics and I know I am going to bang on this and if it goes out on me, I can replace it on the cheap. Dimensions 60” long, 27” wide, 35” high.
