Here is my completed French style bench. I built it mostly to the plans in Chris Schwarz’s workbench book. I made mine a little taller ( 35”). I did this because I worked on it using the top and sawhorses and it was right at 33.5 inches. I’m pretty tall and have a long torso and I foun it to be way to short. The new height has been nice so far.
It’s made of southern yellow pine with cherry accents. I could have chosen the pine a little better to get less knots, but it was always picked over when I went to lowes.
The end vise is just a columbian that I got at a pawn shop, but I think it will work great.
So far I really like th bench, and I don’t imagine I will ever wear it out
