More pics of my workbench showing the other drawers/pullouts.

BTW the plans came from the December/January 2006 issue of The Family Handyman. An almost identical bench was in American Woodworker in January 2004.

Nice bench!

I really like the full extension drawer slides.

I like the idea of having all the planes in the top drawer for easy access.

I just might have to build myself a little drawer like that for my bench. Thanks for the good idea!

Awesome workbench! What wood did you use for the trim on the top?

Thanks, guys.

MountainDrew – I trimmed the door with walnut. The bottom is oak ply with solid oak trim. No finish yet.

Great-looking workbench! I like the walnut trim it looks too good to do work on.

Thanks Sonny,

Thanks for the kind words on the bench. It is a joy to use. I have added dog holes since posting the pics. I’ll have to update the pics.

I see your just up the road. I’m in Parkville.

I bought a bunch of scraps from a guy in Abingdon, which included the walnut. As I recall, it was $50 for over 100 bf of hardwood. He was cleaning out a bunch of wood that was too short/small for his use.
