I designed this workbench to be cheap and big. The base design comes from the workbench plans on woodgears.ca, with solid dowel joinery that makes the bench much more stable than it may appear. It is made out of dimensional lumber and plywood. Even though it is from cheap materials, I spent a lot of time on the details to make it as nice as possible. I did splurge on a nice Jorgensen vise, which I recessed in one end and added hard maple faces (not pictured). The bench top has plywood skins with ribs between, and I glued in a lot of small scraps to make it more solid.
