This is my workbench. The dovetails are a little ruff it doesn’t have a vice yet and it wobbles a little but other than that she’s perfect!

That is a nice bench. It appears to be solid and offers plenty of workspace and storage. This would be a nice addition to any shop.

Nice project. Thanks for the post.

She will make a nice workbench! Looks very solid with plenty of work surface. In a few years she will be soo beat up that no one will notice the dovetails. nice job

Nice and solid. Slid some thin shim of the same material into the DT gaps with some glue and sand or plane it flush. If too tight then cut the joint with a handsaw to allow room for the shim and pack it tight. Only you and I will know….
