Made this bench from fine woodworking instructions. Followed what they outlined precisely. I did not make any alterations to their instructions / diagrams.
Instructions can be found on their site under benches…”rock-solid plywood bench”.
Was pretty straight forward. Took a bit of time simply because there is a lot of glueing. Other than that, there wasn’t any surprises or hick ups.
Mounting the vise was a pain, but that was expected.
I applied one coat of poly on the mdf….as a protectant / sealer.
Costs were as followed:
2 sheets of 3/4 maple ply from Home Depot…..45 each…90
1 sheet of 3/4 mdf from home depot….35
Gallon of tite bond…..20
3” deck screws…..10
Vise brand new off of craigslist….50
I plan on adding two shelves and of course some dog holes after the holidays.
