Hi, This is my last project, my new work bench. I have been working on it during the last month. It is made of European oak, european beech, maple, boxwood (only for wedges), recycled ash (from an old scythe) and chesnut. It has a wagon vise and a front vise, both are made with the same type of bench screw. I added a movable planning stop fitted with two wedges ( I have been using it and for know they work perfect). My old bench will be my kids bench (so they can hammer on it as much as yhey like). As soon as I have better pictures I will change them /if I can, because I am new and I do not know if that is possible). Soory if my english is not accurate.

Very nice, Isra. I like the combo of wood and the contrast.
