This our workbench for our new workshop. It was made out of 2×8 and 2×6 stock and based on Christopher Swartz’s book. The leg vise needs some fine tuning. The screw is from Lee Valley, and we used thrush washers and e-clips for the garter. The end vise was a gift from my Uncle. He restored a Columbian 10”.
We ended up building the leg and stretchers with the top upside down to make sure it all fitted together. The top was made out of 2×8’s ripped down to 4” thick.
Above the bench is a plane & saw till that my Dad help make. It has some of my Grandfathers Stanley planes that I restored back to working condition along with one of his hand saws that he used to build houses from the 1940’s & 1950’s.
