Hello everyone, here’s my first attempt at a Workbench…I’ve become hooked on using hand tools over the past year, so needed something sturdy to help my addiction. :)
This build started as a copy of Paul Sellers’ beginner bench, but gained mass and a leg vise along the way. The core is built from Borg 2×10’s cut and pasted together since they are cheap and obtainable. I added maple and red oak for the leg vise and other parts.
Total size is 30×60” and 36” tall. The tool well is about 8” of that 30. Legs are 5.25” square for solid footing. All mortise and tenon construction, pegged with Brazilian Ironwood where visible, wood screws used where not visible.
