This was made with all hand tools. My Kids needed a work bench, so I decided to make them one that weighed almost as much as mine but was their size. this I White oak and weighs 143 lb the legs are dovetailed into the top. the Top is 3-4” thick with an 8” X 5/4” skirt. it is finished with BLO, Shellac, and several coats of Water based Poly.

Here is the build video If you want more info.

Won’t it be a very slippery work surface?

Now that is one solid workbench! Great work, I’m sure your children will have fun and get some use out of it.

no. the water-based surface really soaks into the grain. it is also a softer finish.
