So I just finished (except for mounting the vises) my workbench which is loosely patterned after the Paul Sellers bench that He uses at his shows. And boy is it rock solid. I made it all from box store 2×4’s and a couple of 2×12’s for the aprons; most of which I had around the basement. I have 2 record #52 1/2 vises that I will mount tomorrow… I hope. I cant wait to get crackin on the new bench. If any one is interested I have the sketchup plans/ measured drawings
cheers!

All information you need, you can find on Pauls website and his youtube-channel:

https://paulsellers.com/tag/building-a-workbench/?orderby=&order=asc

https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulSellersWoodwork/search?query=workbench

Change the dimensions to your needs. One thing, I found to be important is the height. For my workbench, I decided to a height recommended by Paul and after working a while on different projects and with different tools, I am very happy I did. https://paulsellers.com/?s=height

Hope this helps!
