I finally finished the last touches on my new workbench. You can see the first 2 parts in my projects. Since the last part I added a small shoulder vise on the end instead of a tail vise or a twin screw vise. It works very well with my large shoulder vise. As with the first, my father turned me a handle. I can clamp an 8 ft. board if I need to. The vises work great with the bench pups and wonder pups. I picked up all of these at Highland Woodworking.
I also added a large drawer which comes in handy to hold a lot of things. This also inspired me to add a drawer to my drill press stand.
I set out to make a strong, sturdy cost effective workbench and I believe that I have succeeded. I have logged many hours on it already (and eaten off it as well). I am always looking forward to another day in the shop.
