Built this a couple years ago but didn’t get the time to upload. Inspired by a number of different benches I’ve seen. Used an old oak table cut into strips and laminated for the top. The surrounding apron from a hardwood table I found outside someone’s house. Some reclaimed redwood posts for the legs. Face and end vises were found on CL. The end vise chop has my non-patented pop-up bench dogs which can be seen in an earlier post.
Thanks to my wife for letting me hide out in the garage and hammer this one out!
Interesting fact: the top was used for a photo of a molecular model for a journal publication. Granted all you see is the laminated wood in the photo. It can be seen here:
We’ve since moved, so I sold this to lighten our load. My new workbench? Much less involved.
