I wanted to make two benchs that way I could use one for clamping the other for layout and fabrication
(Still need to add dog holes and another vise on the side )
Also the other reason for two benches is so that I can line them up in different angles =Long, square,L shape or T shaped.
Under the bench tops I allowed 6.5” space between the cabinet and the top for hand planes etc.
I did’nt want to add sides to the bench, that way I could slide bar type clamps under the bench top.
The bench top is approx 2.25” thick by 56” long the one with the end vise is 30” wide the other is 24” wide
Types of wood
Maple tops and frame ,Walnut with Birdseye Maple drawer fronts
This for All who ask What was I thinking!!! well to answer that question.
I wanted a Gift for myself Plus its my insperation point everytime I go out to my shop .
My desk you might say .
Everything in life comes and goes and hopefully for a good price.
I either sell most of my stuff or it goes as a gift .
