The top is a core of three layers of 3/4 MDF bonded with UF. I cased it in 1/4 birch ply for looks. It absorbs vibration from the router nicely and I can pound on it without worry. The little plugs are maple stops for sanding and planing ops. It serves both wood working and as an out feed table for my RAS.
Legs and structural members are laminated 3/4 ply with some veneer here and there to dress it all up. The cabinet field pieces are 1/4 birchply. Lag screw hold it together. Since building it I moved the vice to the left end to allow a shallow drawer in the middle for my templates. The black monster on the left of the first picture is a cyclone adapter for a 55 gal drum that collects most of the dust and shavings sucked up before my shop vac sees it. Not completely effective as I periodically have to clean the shop vac filter.
All in all I have more in the Incra-Jig than in the bench. It was fun to make and taught me a lot.
