I finally completed my workbench this weekend. After a year of dreaming and 2 months of work it is finally done. This bench began after purchasing the book “Workbenches” by Christopher Schwarz. The construction is primarily construction grade southern yellow pine. All pieces were milled and laminated to make the structure.
Dimensions: 90” long, 27’ deep and 35” high.
The top is a full 4” thick and the legs are 5”x5”
I used Walnut for the leg vice, quick release vice chop and dowels to lock the mortise and tennon joinery. No special reason other than i like the contrast in color. I must say this bench is a beast. It weighs around 300+ pounds. I figure it should last me quite a while.
Thanks for looking!
