I recently re-arranged my shop and found enough room for an honest to god workbench. After more research than is actually healthy, I finally decided on the New Fangled Workbench. The digital plans are not great, but with the sketchup file it is at least decipherable.

The plans call for 3 2×4’s on one side of the top, and I replaced those with a 2×12. Clamps on the top, as a vise, works better than I expected. I have some handmade sketches to add a bank of storage drawers under the bench!

Nice build! I had built but ended up to be to large for my shop, had to go mostly set up for sliding miter saw.
