I made this bench top bench from plans from the March/April 2005 issue of Fine Woodworking. Since I only had enough 8/4 Maple for the vice I made the frame from 3/4” Maple and face glued all the pieces. I also used some scrap Brazilian Cherry for the end frames. Although not shown, I made a holder for the bench dogs when not in use. Hopefully this will save my back when doing detail work.
Additional note: I glued 150 grit sandpaper to the bottoms of the legs so when clamped to my bench it does not move at all.
