I came into an ash tree after a wind storm hit my inlaws farm . It’s 9.5 ft. long and approx 20 inches in diameter . after trying to decide on a design/style I settled on a combination between a Reubo style with a few modifications . it will be 6 ft. long 10.5 inches wide with a tool tray about 8inches wide . the top will be 4 inches thick ( the reubo part) with a base of 4’‘x5’’ legs and 3’‘x4’’ stretchers . It will utilize holdfast and one leg vise . the design will allow a modification to add an end vise and to widen the top by 5 inches allowing for dog holes . this would change it to a german style with little cost . wish me luck . hopefully pics will come soon but thats my wifes expertise .

I agree with Jim, Larry. Bench construction posts are always well received.

I’m building part of that as you type… maybe have a look and see if it helps…

well i finally got outside and started again on the bench. i finished two joints. don’t sound like much but they were big . they turned out good-n-tight . now i need more days off so i can continue. does anyone have any winning lottery tickets to donate so i can get this bench done? just kidding . have fun ya’ll.
