I just finished building this yellow pine workbench tonight. The wood was cut out of our living room’s ceiling when the ceiling was vaulted last spring. I’m glad I was able to save this beautiful yellow pine wood. I plan to put a 10” quick release vise on it in the next couple of weeks.

Nice bench. It should give you years of service and should see many great projects cross its surface.

How long did you think about building this before you started the project? I ask because I have been thinking about building one for about 3 years off and on (probably much ,longer :). The design is what keeps me from starting. I know, it is not a good reason <laugh> but there are so many options..

I would enjoy hearing about the quick release vise you pick.
