Built myself a new workbench with really good vise. It is made from Maple with the handles and vise being made from Ash. All this lumber I cut with my homemade mill http://lumberjocks.com/projects/107378.
The drawers have modular boxes that are all multiples of each other so I can move them around and they will always fit the drawer. Made extra jaws to fit the vise that will grip small round objects like bolts and threaded rod for cutting. Also have some spacers for the jaws and made a couple of bench dogs from 3/4 ” threaded rod.

Here are some more pics of the build.

Sean, another great job. And it’s from your own stash. LOL! Satisfying I’m sure.

Nice and clean project. I like the drawers the most, so many storage space.

What a great build! Do the vise screws have acme threads? I was wondering where you got them.

Super nice. Lotsa finger joints but well worth it. Lotsa storage. I like your homemade bench dogs also.

You sir have talent! That’s too nice to work on! Nah, it’ll just be super fun to build now!
Do you have any problems with the bench racking? I suppose all those drawers stiffen it up pretty well. Further, it looks like you dovetailed the top stretchers to the sides…
Thanks for sharing
