Hobbyist woodworker from Alabama. Started woodworking 5 years ago, but have been very, very part time due to work duties. Have recently been setting aside more time for woodworking.
Very interested in hand tools, although I am not planning on giving up my power tools anytime soon. My last project was a new workbench. Currently I am making a few shop appliances in anticipation of my next project, which will be a set of Shaker side tables for the living room, made from white oak.

So the purpose of this blog post was to help show how I built my bench. There are several things that might be of interest to a new woodworker (like myself). I worried for a long time that I wouldn’t be able to afford a nice bench, or that I...
