Here is my first workbench.
I choose the Paul Sellers type for various reasons.
I like the rigidity which comes from the apron glued to the top slab and the anti-raking feature of the wedges acting on the leg frames.
As I have a very tiny space to install it (attic on the second floor) I like its knock-down possibility.
I did most of the work in my backyard on a Workmate when the weather was fine.

Finished dimensions
L: 1.47 m
W: 0.6 m
H: 0.96 m
working width: 0.3m
thickness: 70 mm

Good job. Looks to be nice and sturdy. You should enjoy that bench for years to come. Now … go bang it up!

Thank you for your kind words Ron.

It is made mainly with recycled lumber.
I wish my skills were better.
With a stable bench I should be able to develop the sensitivity P.S. is speaking about, instead of chasing the Workmate.

You did a very nice job on this bench and it will be a fine addition to your shop.
