Finished my Woodsmith workbench this weekend. I shortened the length to 72 inches and the height to 33 inches from the plan. Bench is heavy and solid. Can’t wait to start my next project using my new bench.

Looks like a great bench to work from. Sure wish I had one that looked that good.

Great Job

That’s a great looking bench, and I know you’ll be smiling every time you use it. I love the one I just built a couple of weeks ago and have used it many times already. Wished I had it a long time ago. Enjoy your new bench, you did a great job on it.

Great bench! Is that douglas fir or ???

Looks like you buried the inner jaw of your vice in the side molding like they did on the WSS show.

Thanks for sharing.

I have been looking at building this same bench as my first project. How well did it all go together? Did you just purchase 2×4 from a box store for the legs? Thanks for posting

Stellar job on the building of the bench….now all you need is a cabinet under it full fo drawers to hold all your tools you use at the bench…..take a look at mine on my woodshop page, and you’ll see what I mean…
