This was the second tool I made just before I started working entirely by hand. And I’m glad I did because this bench -now a year old- has made hand tool work a breeze. Love it.

Great bench! Like the others have said, that deadman vise is sweet. Did you make the bench out of SYP?

Thank you everyone for the kind words. Yes, it is SYP, with ash for the vise chops.

That is an awesome bench. As far as the heart of the workshop is concerned this one looks healthy.
I also like the flood lights for smoothplaning. Great set up.

With the time constrains you’re having, I just can’t imagine how you managed to build this workbench. Beautiful & functional.
