I am wondering has anyone built the Carlyle Lynch Classic Workbench from Woodcraft? It seem to be out of my skill level but I still wont to try it. It looks like it has a tail vise but I cant tell from the picture, If it does that will be a plus for hand planning.

You can do it. Just take your time and it’ll come out great.

Looks simple to me, your morris chairs were harder than that.

Start the build, you’ll have a great bench for the new year!!!!

From taking a quick look at your projects, I think this workbench is well within your grasp. I recently finished a workbench of my own. It was more complicated then the one you are considering and it challenged me. It took me a while, but thinking through each step I was working on and doing it carefully made it successful. There are things that could have been better on my bench, but I learned a ton doing it and the next thing I build won’t have those same mistakes.

The biggest reason to build the bench: you will love having a new/bigger/sturdier/better equipped bench!

Charles, as mentioned your morris chairs were more complicated than this workbench – I think this workbench is well within your capabilities to make – go for it!

Looks simple enough to build with your skill level, but if your concerned with it being out of your skill level maybe you might like the New Fangled Workbench and be more comfortable with these plans.
Just a thought.
