I built this workbench a few months ago and finally got around to posting it. It’s from FWW believe, sorry I can’t find the magazine in came out of. I modified it a little bit to suit my needs. I used ambrosia maple, made the top from three layers of MDF and finished it off with some poly. I put a Jorgensen 10” rapid action vise which works great. I also barried the rear jaw. I really like it and it’s a major step up from what I was working with before. It is really solid and does not skate around due to the weight of the top.

Very well done, that one should hold up! I built something similar and I put in a lower shelf, then added a center compartment with some drawers. Holds a lot and makes it heavier.

Great job. Looks too nice to use. I think I’ll try to duplicate it. What are the dimensions?
