This is a modified Tage Frid bench, FWW, fall 1976. At that time I followed his plans. I didn’t like the face vise and the tool well was a rubbish sink. This is made of euro beech and built in 6 days over an 8 day block. The face vise was another 1/2 day later on. No handwork on this one, except the thru M & T on the face vise.
The main lamination, minus the dog rail & back rail, is 16in to suit my over & under planer. Hand scraped top.
I was 65 and very chuffed with the time. Everything just flowed on this one. It was summer so I had long days.
The bench is 1 year old.
