This one is from Norm Abrams Mostly Shaker book. The bench dogs do come in pretty handy, and the materials were relatively low cost. The height is the same as my table saw, so I can use it as infeed support as well.

well done, has everyone else missed the WIP bandsawn boxes atop of the new bench?

great job. I watch that episode of NYW, and keep thinking I need to build one. How difficult was it to do the vice?

Nicely done!
I have the same one.
I built it about 15 years ago.
It didn’t get used much until I added wheels to it.
Now I use it all of the time.
I have been thinking of adding a front vise to it.

Note: My shop is also our garage and the wife’s car lives in there at night so everything I have is mobile with the exception of the bench. I recently added a flip up mobile base to the bench so now it’s easy to move around to wherever I need it.

Looks great and very functional design. It’s very helpful and handy around the shop. Great job!

Have your say...
