Yes yet another Moravian workbench. Douglas fir with milk paint base and topcoat of linseed oil. This is my first experience with one of these benches but it definitely is solid and still able to transport. Good for us gorilla carpenters.
6 8 ‘ 4×4s, 2 8’ 2×4s, 1 1”x10” 6’ & scrap oak for tusk wedges and vice chop. 63” long 24” wide 34” tall

Hi! Very nice and good looking bench! Can you post a picture of how you made the joints of the legs with the top?

This is a straightforward solid bench. I like the wedge tenons. Great job.

How do you secure the top to the base? Nice work.

Im in the process right now of building my Moravian Bench. Really like the breadboard ends on the top, and the contrast of the dark base with the light top and tusk wedges. Well executed, and handsome!

Nice bench. What does it weigh? Sounds like you are dragging it along to jobs.
