I wanted a smaller work bench for my shop to use as an assembly table and extra bench top space. I made this out of red oak and silver maple. The top is made from a couple slabs of silver maple and oak that I had. Its an inch and half thick. Frame of the bench is all oak with through tenons for the bottom stretchers and half laps for the other supports. Tenons are pegged with a dowel and all the half laps were glued/screwed and plugged. Top is 45 12×32 in.

Great looking table, Dan. Did you have to build it because all of your other workspace is covered with hand planes? ;-) I love those through tenons, by the way.

Nice job Dan.
It looks strong enough to hold a Chevy.
That should last you quite a while.
Those through tenons set it off visually as well.
