I just completed my workbench, and I’d like to show it to you. The top is 2 1/2 inch laminated ash and I bought that from a supplier in the area. The vice jaws and base I made of red oak. It’s a good thing the photo doesn’t show it too closely, but I think it came out reasonably well and should serve me for many years for making furniture which is what I hope, eventually, to do. I used Watco Danish Oil, Natural color, on the base and a 50-50 mixture of boiled linseed oil and turpentine on the top.
It was a lot of fun and much learning to get it this far, and I extend my thanks to so many of you on this forum who have answered my many questions along the way.
Happy New Year to all!
