    Simple sturdy workbench

    Hey I just wanted to share this, I've finally completed my first work bench.  It all started from  your simple sturdy workbench plan! I tweaked it to suit my tastes and added a few things from some other publications... ahem, ShopNotes magazine #65 to be precise! Thank you for giving me the desire to build something that I can start woodworking with ( ;  

    Base is made from Doug Fir as per your plans.  Top is made from 3 sheets of oak plywood wrapped in 1 X 3 oak boards except for the end that I added the Moxon Vise to. It is constructed from laminated 1 X 6 oak boards. The face vise is a 9 inch quick release that I recessed and boy that was a lot more planning and head scratching than I thought it would be but I am happy with the way it all turned out.

    I think the first thing I will build should be some storage drawers to fit on the bottom shelf!
