I got my workbench done and just have to put the clamps on and then I will post my blog on how it works. But the bench finishes out at 650lbs and 38” to the top of the bench by 30” wide and 6’ long. I love it and cant wait to keep going.

Are you going to add any drawers under it?

Looks strong and at 650lb its not going anywhere! It may be my next project but will lower it so that it can double as an outfeed table for the table saw.

Nice Bench! Not usual to see the the wood used transversal instead of longitudinal….any particular reason?

It’s a great looking bench.

How thick are the top and legs? The legs look like about 6×6 so the top is around 3-4 inches thick?

What wood species is the bench made of?

What kind of vises (leg,wagon, end, face, etc.) are you going to put on it?

Lew, I might put some under it but I dont know yet Maybe
Tango, I put the wood transversal because the bench sections move back and forth as clamps.
Coloradoclimber, The legs are 5”x5” and the top is 2 7/8” and the whole thing is white ash
Barney I am not going to be putting a vise on the bench because the four top sections are my vise I will explain that in a blog.
Everyone else, thanks for the comments and I dont really think it is going anywhere.

Talk about solid 650 lbs, that’s a tank! Looks awesome, great job

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
