Hi everyone. I just joined LumberJocks and wanted to post my new workbench. This was my first woodworking project and felt a bit like timber framing since the joints were so big. The top is made out of ash, the base and shelf are cherry, and the leg vice is quilted maple. I started with rough lumber I bought from an arborist, and dimensioned it down on my brother’s power machines. I then did the rest of the work my hand. I wanted to make it furniture quality since my hand tool-only workshop is in the spare bedroom of my house. I worked on it on and off for about four months. It has been a lot of fun to use so far.
I have already enjoyed looking at some of the other projects on the site and look forward to talking with you all more.
