From canoes to workbenches. I built this adapted from Woodsmith magazine June 2015.
I took 3” off the legs and made the front straight across. Black walnut and maple with prefinished birch
plywood. Top is 55” x about 22” x 1 5/8”.

Nice work with hobby bench. I like the finger hole pulls and walnut, it looks great. I have stalled about halfway through mine. Like you, I altered the plans to suite me for a bigger hand tool storage bench. I have the top, base frame and cases built. I ruined a lot of maple trying to resaw the drawer parts from big quarter lumber. Most of it started cupping as soon as I milled it. Live and learn like your tag line I suppose.

This will be a fine piece of shop furniture whether it will be used for a desk, workbench, or whatever. It will be a handy piece for the shop. Nice work!
