I finally built myself a new workbench. I always wanted to build one but something always got in the way… Work. :) My last one served me well but was more of huge table with just a side vise.
For the top, I used 2×6 saplungan which is very dense and heavy. The dogs (pegs) are dungon (ironwood)as well as the side and end vise jaws. I also added three dogs on the end vise which I think will help a lot when working with cabinet doors that I sculpt. The legs are 5 1/2×5 1/2 yakal and the stretchers are also saplungan. The table weighs 400+ lbs. Maybe sometime in the future I’ll be putting drawers underneath for some of my tools
I just started using this bench today crafting a new smoothing plane. I love my new table!!! just wanted to share with you guys. Have a great weekend!
