I built this last winter using the Kreg pocket system. This jig is great!!! even for a novice

materials from Lowes … learning how measure and cut square was my learning experience. I have since made 3

more workbenches and the joins are super strong. will try my luck with picture frames next

more will be revealed

All of us started simple and worked our way up. It can be come addicting.
The Kreg pocket system is very helpful in a lot of situations. For something like this I would have suggested using lap joints which would be even stronger.

Atta boy, Koog. You got started…the hardest part of any worthwhile adventure. And your result was a handsome work table any of us would be proud of. Congratulations, and thanks for posting.

That looks like the same bench I made with my Kreg system when I got it.

Nice looking bench! My next purchase is the kreg system. Seems like a must have tool to have around the shop.
Enjoy working on that new bench!! Welcome to LJ’s and thanks for posting.

A very fine way to start out by building a bench so that you can build other things. All you need now is a vise. Nice job.
