A other bench top bench from the old Fine Woodworking article. Lot of work actually. Done in Hard maple starting with 8/4 lumber. I did not feel confident doing the mortise tenon construction so i moved to a dowel technique using 1/2 home made cherry dowel and a 12mm hole. A lot of pounding to make them fit without a lot of glue but did work at the end. Of course a lot of mistake along the way but did turn out ok. I like it already !

This is a great auxiliary bench with many special uses that come to mind. Nice work.
