So, my first bench consisted of a Base with 4 layers of MDF and a poplar skirt. I just finished my new Benchtop. It’s made of construction lumber laminated for a top. My previous bench had a Face Vise and a Tail Vise, but I decided to try a Leg Vise, just because I felt like it. It’s 28×72 inches. Doubles as an outfeed table, even though my fence impedes the process a little bit.

Nice bench. You’ll like that it’s a complimentary height, adds flexibility.

I have a similar top as your first. I’m gathering ideas to upgrade now. Your bench looks like a beast. Let me know how you like the leg vise. Overall, a nicely build bench. I hope you enjoy using it.
