I recently started making custom work benches for sale. This is the second one so far. Neither one had vises, but I will add them when needed. Custom sizes, materials, vises, etc are available. I am also working g on detailed plans that will be available for sale as soon as I can figure out my blasted CAD program. I have always been one of those guys that builds from a sketch on a napkin!
The top is laminated 1 1/2” thick Ash, banded with Walnut and Oak. The base is Oak with doweled joints. I would have used my Festool Domino, but my son had it when I was ready to do this project. Soon I will be getting the large Domino machine, so in the future that’s how I will create the joints, unless someone specifies something different on a custom bench. The long stretchers will be knock down hardware to allow for shipping. For local I can certainly go either way.
I am actually getting as much I interest in this as furniture as I am work benches. t certainly doesn’t matter to me.
If you have followed me over the years you know my shop stuff is made like furniture anyway. It’s not in me to do it any other way!
Thanks for looking!
