Finally finished my workbench. It is based on the Essential Workbench from FWW. Hard Maple with Jatoba aprons. 2 Lie-Nielsen chain drive vises, one 12” on the face, and the other 18” on the end. The top is about 29” deep by 90” long. It took about 4 months of on and off work on weekends and random evenings after work. The dovetails ended up being through dovetails with a piece of Jatoba laminated onto the pin board after I blew out one of the sockets while chiseling it out. It is finished with a couple of coats of a Bees Wax, Turpentine, BLO mixture. The top is about 2 1/4” thick with 5”+ wide aprons. A cabinet full of drawers is in the near future.
