I wanted a workbench with more clamping options than what I had. I am planning to use more handtools (planes, etc) so I needed something to hold stock securely. I checked out a number of different types workbenches before deciding on this one. I got the plans from plansnow.com. I altered the plans slightly in order the make the top thicker than the 1 1/2” called out. The entire bench is made of ash. I finished building just as the temperatures in Phoenix started to reach the high 90’s so I haven’t applied finish yet. I may go with laquer or linseed oil. Heck, maybe I’ll leave it natural.
