Originally published as project in the Nov/Dec 1999 issue of Fine Woodworking, this bench was developed by John White, the shop manager at FWW. It was recently revived when the folks at the magazine put out a video as an update due to several inquiries about the bench over the years. For links to the video and the public-domain PDF file with the plans, please check out my blog on the build process. The blog contains some Sketchup shots as well as an idea for making the bench more of a knock-down type bench for those with limited space and/or seasonal considerations that would require portability.
Fir construction lumber (be sure to check out the article for suggestions on the milling)
1/2” Galvanized pipe
Jorgensen “Pony” pipe clamp fittings
Lag bolts and deck screws
Thanks for taking a look.
P.S. My apologies for the fuzziness of the photos. I didn’t realize until I saw them blown up they were shaky. I need to use a tripod in the future.
