This is my workbench that I built. It is a Woodsmith magazine design from some time back. It has a side vise and tail vise that both work great. The top is made of red oak and walnut. The base is laminate pine._

Nice bench. Scar it all up so you can work on it.

Very nice looking bench. How thick is the walnut section? Your tail vice reminds me that I have a bench screw that I got many years ago that I am still wanting to put onto my current bench. I’m sure that your bench will bring you many years of good woodworking.

That is a beautiful bench. I love the contrasting colors. I am wondering which issue of Woodsmith you were referring to?

Mark, the walnut is 3/8’’ thick with a 1 1/2’’ thick mdf core. ,, VT, as far as the woodsmith issue goes, I’m not sure. It was one of the old black and white issues from probably ten years ago.

Karson, you should see the top now. The bench was completed some time back and is in need of resurfacing in a big way.

Beautiful bench! And, it looks like you’ve got a nice spacious, well organized shop to put it in. I’ll bet it is a pleasure to use.
Real nice job.

Nice work! Great looking bench. I like the end flip stops. I also like what we get to see of your shop in the background!

That is a big tool tray in the bench, looks great. If you had to make it over again would you do anything different?

awesome table. Looks very functional AND helpful—holding stuff for you without it being in the way.
