I finished my workbench a few months ago, I had been procrastinating as much as I could on installing the tail vise with good reason, what a pain! I could never wrap my brain around it but it’s on and functions good. So today I put a coat of BLO on it and thought it was time to post on LJ’s. It is made from S.Y.P. construction lumber, the top is 3 1/2” thick, 25” deep and a little over 7ft. long. The the legs are a little less than 5” square, are all mortise and tenon then draw bored where connected to the stretchers. I have really enjoyed using this bench for the past few months, it does not budge at all when planing, and has a real solid feel when chiseling.
