I blogged building this bench several months ago but wanted to post it on my projects page. Please forgive the double posting.
The bench is maple, the top just shy of 3 3/16” thick. The final dimensions were closer to the second drawing, but the first drawing has a better narrative. Having used this bench for 4 months now I am very pleased with it. I’ve not had much luck in the past using hand planes, but with this bench, I’m starting to master the skill. The wagon wheel vise from benchcrafted works great, as does the Jorgenson face vice.
