This is my workbench dream. Is only a dream, because I haven´t got enough space in my workshop(is very, very small).I hope can to build one day.

Nice concept. I’d recommend extending the front well past the handles of the drawers and putting a wider apron on the top. Enjoy the build when you get the chance to do it.

Nahhhh…take 200lbs out of it and put some casters on it! Basically the same problem people have with billiard tables that exolve into inflexible bohemoths to put folded laundry on….But thats just me.

Nice design.
Personally I wouldn’t let all that space under it so unused. It will only collect dust.
If it is wide as it proportionally looks in the drawing you may want drawers and cupboard doors on both sides.
I do agree putting some heavy duty casters on it would be good; especially if they were retractable.
You didn’t give a size but you could always start smaller.

I just posted in the Blog section a drawing of a bench I have been brain storming for a while. See what you think.

amigo este es un banco para maestros,un banco como los que usan la gente que hay aqui,el que tengo yo es mucho mas cutre y muy mala vida que le doy.Yo tambien espero que un dia lo puedas realizar y nos lo puedas enseñar,se lo frustrante que es tener la cabeza llena de proyectos y no poderlos realizar por falta de espacio o por no disponer de maquinas a tu gusto,te puedo decir que esto de la madera al que le gusta de verdad le dura toda la vida y por lo tanto si creo que puedas realizar “el banco de tus sueños”.

Rotech, estoy de acuerdo con Ramón, aqui se ve cada banco que quita el hipo, aqui son baaaastante mas cutres, me gustan sobretodo los agujeros para los “dog bench” creo que aqui se llaman perrillos o trinquetes no estoy seguro. yo tengo el de mi abuelo que es de encina aunque lo modifique para hacerlo mas ancho era el tipico banco estrecho, de unos 50 cm de ancho ahora es mas bien una mesa tiene un tablero de 122×244 aunque conservo el torno, pero vamos, que no se puede comparar con lo que se ve por aqui, no creo que me atreviera a publicar una foto :)
ya veo que dominas el skepchup, yo aun estoy un poco verde con el.

Que tal Hector, me ha sorprendido ver que este es el banco que te gusta porque coincide bastante con el que te puse de laguna tools jejejeje O_* y como me dijiste que el que te gustaba era el Roubo version benchcrafted (enlace del video de youtube) Ahora me acuerdo tambien que confudi a Andre J. Roubo con Michael Aurio de Aurio Rasps, esas deliciosas escofinas que me quitan el sueño y tarde o temprano tienen que caer en my tiny workshop
Un abrazo amigo
