Second project from New Yankee Workshop journey. Workbench is built from reclaimed deck wood – mostly redwood and Chipboard/OSB for the top.
Skirting around the vice and bench dog tail stock is made from oak. Vise does double duty for bench dogs and clamping pieces for hand sawing.
It was a great learning experience and a low cost opportunity to find out what I like and don’t like in a work bench.
Future iterations will have a heavier base and frame and a hardwood top – the current version is too light and moves when I do heavy planing on it. Works well as a light duty bench though.
The Harbor Freight vise is surprisingly stout however.
