Nothing special here… Straight work bench made from OTS Home Depot lumber and Flood water-proofing finish… $35 and 2 hours though! Not too shabby for a custom fit into a tiny workspace (See my shop)...

Can anyone recommend a good, mountable vise for wood working? Y’all seem to be at the top of the game when it comes to product recommendations… Thanks!

Now that is one nice bench.
I see all these fancy Roubo’s and others, but really want you need is a steady, solid, stable, work surface and this nice bench sure seems to fit the bill.
I bet this will last you for a long time and serve you quite well.
This is a bench any woodworker would be proud to use.
Thanks for showing it.

And welcome to Lumberjocks.

I have to agree with Woodwrecker that table looks good to me

I bench is made from nothing more then 2×4s i have had it for about 10 years and still gooding strong but she looks like hell with paint cuts and holes in her but still solid. solid is the key

Thanks, gents! That was my thinking too… It gets better looking the more action it sees… Thinking about adding another one for the other side of the shop…

Thanks for the votes of confidence!
