I bought a maple top thinking I would build a traditional bench but after seeing some made from fellow lumber jocks and reading Chris Schwarz’s book on workbenches I came up with this. I used the maple top and glued two 3/4” plywood sheets to the bottom. The ends and side are 6 quarter poplar the legs, stretchers, and shelving are made from structural lumber from home depot. I added foot pads because my shop floor is very uneven. I finished it with boiled linseed oil with some maple dye.
