My first workbench with vise.
The truss rod construction is used for the base so that I can easily disassemble.
Stacked 2×4 lumber(2 of 10 mm dia truss rods are sandwiched) is used for the legs and end stretchers
(2×6 for the side stretchers) of the base frame. Bottom and top bracing are 2×4 with bolt
The table top is made of 3 particle boards (20 mm thick) stacked with 5 mm thick MDF attached..
The vise is made of European beech and 20mm dia rods and 20mm dia acme screw.
Total weight is about 85Kg (Base=33Kg, Table=42Kg Vice=10Kg).
As always, many flaws but functional as I expect.
