Thanks all. I did hand flatten it w my Stanley no 6 and winding sticks. Glad you liked my draw bore pin. Those suckers are expensive and luckily my dowel hole were big!The image on the leg vise is my “signature” marking and date completed.

I have been looking at various workbenches to try and decide what kind I want to build, but cost is a factor for me. What did this build cost you?

What wood is that?

Hey Vrtigo 1. I don’t think I spent over $300.
Big Ben, it’s all southern yellow pine from the local big box store. But be careful it’s not wet. Mine was and some of it tied into pretzels after milling and sitting overnight!
