This is my main workbench for most work. It was based on a 1976 FWW #4 article by Tage Frid. I had made five before for me and three other people and then three after this one. It is made of maple and weights about 500#. It is made for a right handed person as I am. It is 35.5” high. The ten drawers are all different woods and joints. They are all finished with oil which gives a darker look. The tool storage bench in the shop pictures are finished with super blonde shellac which gives lighter and brighter colors. Each drawer has a different type joint, some are finger and some are power cut dovetails. It has four vices each lined with leather. The tool tray is 3.5” deep but fills level when the insert is installed. The rack on the back holds eight rulers up to six feet long.
