When I got back into woodworking, the first tool I needed was a bench. I downloaded some plans. Here it is before I added edging and a vise.

Are you a surgeon? That shop looks like an operating room!

Nice bench.

Hi Ron,

That is one solid bench you have there. I hope you were expecting the sawdust comments. A spic and span shop is something that looks like it is not being used. Just throw a few tools on the bench and scatter a little dust on the floor and post some pictures to your workshop. :)

Thanks for the picture of the bench. This is something that I need to add to my shop.

That’s a great bench. It was the first thing I built in my shop also.

It is a very strong work bench. But pl give us the dimentions of the bench and other sections in its cinstruction and the wood used so that I can make one. I really need a good work bench to accelerate my projects. So pl give details.

I hate you and your sterile clean room workshop. Just kidding… it looks like a great place to get things started.

Either you haven’t built anything yet or you need to come to my place and help with a thorough cleanup.

That bench looks strudy!
Thx for sharing.

Thanks for the comments! I know what you mean about being too clean – the photos were taken before I got things started. Its starting to look a little like a real workshop now that I have some projects going.

Great job Ron. Built my first bench just a couple of months ago. Sure is handy.

Looks like the bench should do the trick. In the 40 + years of doing woodworking I never had a bench like this. I mostly built cabinets where a larger work table was needed. Thanks for posting. Good luck starting back into woodworking.

God Bless
