an ash workbench i recently built. it’s nothing special, but i thought it would make a good first project to share. the design is just a combination of some benches/features Chris Schwarz has described in various articles and his Workbenches book (which i highly recommend). the top is almost three inches thick and is secured to the base via drawbored M/T joints. i absolutely love the leg vise and the quick-release vise on the end works really well also. i was pleasantly surprised with how well it turned out. again, i highly recommend Schwarz’s Workbenches book. it really helped me understand what kind of workbench i wanted and also how to best construct it. thanks for looking.
