With this new workbench I can now retire the “door on legs” that has served me well for the past 11 years. The legs on this bench are mortise and tenoned, stretchers are wedged tenons, all made from oak. The top is laminated 2×4’s on edge with a hardwood oak top. The leg vise was fun to make. I threaded 1-1/2” maple dowels using a Beall Wood Threader. I don’t recall where I got the plans from but I made a few adaptations and am pleased with how smooth the action is and the amount of force that can be applied.
I need to make a bench vise for the end but that will need to happen at a later date.
Your comments and questions are welcome. Thanks for looking.
