This is my first workbech, recently completed. It is cobbled together out of an old butcher block table, some old oak barn wood (which has beautiful grain), and a few new oak boards to for the strechers. I did as much work by hand as I could, flattening the top with hand planes, chopping the mortises by hand etc. While it isn’t perfect it was a great oportunity to learn new skills and get something usefull!
A few pictures of it coming together and a picture of it in place with tools in their slots.
Thinking of adding a cabinet underneath next for storage.
