Built another workbench a few weeks back.

Reclaimed beech was used for the construction.

Traditional tail vise, removable tool tray, floating mortise and tenon construction on the base.

Heavy, flat and just the ticket for work in the shop.

Wow Impressive to say the least! Kind of different with the removable trough, could be handy if clamping on the bench.

I really like your workbench, especially your tail vise. Any way you could post some notes or pictures on your build? Maybe a blog?

A couple more pictures of the build/construction. I didn’t take many pictures during the build, start to finish it was a pretty quick bench build, a few days at most. Probably not much of a chance on a build or blog on this one, but I will try to get one done on the next bench.

I make the wooden screws, so I had a beech screw in stock that I used to match the beech on the bench.

I used a slightly modified version of the Tail Vise on my site (
