Simple workbench

It was my longest build so far and lasted for three years because of permanent lack of time. A half of work is done by hand tools. The top is made from birch, the bottom is made from pine. The workbench is of a very simple designe, but steady and damn heavy. The workbench is collapsible and fasten together with wedges, so it can be moved if necessary. Coated with linseed oil.
Best wishes!

Good job … looks solid. Kudos on the joints!

Very nice looking bench!

How did you fasten the top to the legs? and what kind of vices are those?

Thanks guys!
Ryan, the top is connected to the bottom with dowels about 1” of diameter without glue. So the top can be dismounted.

That is one nice bench Serge. It does indeed look to be very heavy, which is a good characteristic for a bench. I really like the way you designed it to come apart if needed. All of us here are familiar with the lack of desired shop time. Must feel great to finally have it done.

Love the joinery! Great job. I imagine you will enjoy using this bench for years to come.
