I’ve been working on my new bench on the weekends for a month or so. It’s now finally done. It has two old Emmert vises on one end (one is flush mounted and the other is not) and a Veritas Twin Vise on the other end. I used 6 old Craftsman table saw extensions to square up and stiffen the base. A couple more coats of tung oil and I’ll be putting it to use!
The dimensions of the bench are really a function of the size of the tablesaw extensions that were used in the base (12” x 27”). The legs are 6” square of oak; top is 3” of beech, and the ends are of Brazilian cherry. The height of the bench is somewhat adjustable. Right now it is at 35” but it can be changed by about +/0 1.5”.
I added a rough plan into the photo mix. Of course th actual bench ended up a little differently!
