I built this lightweight Cedar Bench last summer while on a weight restriction of not more then 10 pounds after emergency hernia surgery.
I built it in sections so I could transport it 300 miles to our winter home without getting another hernia.
Everyone told me a Cedar Bench wouldn’t last a month. Well it’s been several months and it holding up very well. It seems to me that the Cedar Top doesn’t dent anymore then my hard Maple Swedish bench.
In any case, it has a quick release vise that weighs 36 pounds that is a hassle and a Veritas Inset Vise, which is a God Send.
The finish is Minwax Wipe-On Polyurethane over Blond De-Waxed Shellac.
