I made this work bench a little while ago, when I started getting into hand tools and it has gotten a lot of use. I watched the Paul Seller Poor Man’s workbench series on youtube, and copied the Idea. I’ve added a few things to it. like the leg vise and some stretchers.
It’s just made of 2×4 and fence pickets for the bottom shelf. It’s about 4foot, by 2.5 feet. It is a little light, so If I get to planing to rough than it slides across the floor. I have great hopes of building another one, and maybe convert this into a smaller bench for the kids.
I just screwed in a furring strip, for a planing stop, and I made a couple of bench dogs on the lathe. Also made the holdfast. I know it’s not made of wood, but I thought I would sneak it in there.
