I just built a workbench with a 24” Veritas face vice, a quick release end vice, hounds tooth dovetail bread board ends and whatever technique I had not done before. After all it is a workbench. What better build to try out new things on. It is 21 inches deep and 60 inches long. Perfect for joinery.

WOW, you went all out on that!

Never could understand those dovetails. How the don’t break in build and assembly…fine work…

Years ahead for that bench…very great build…

I like that tool cabinet too. Those doubled tails are a interesting look. I too wonder why they don’t break during assembly. Beautiful work there. You will enjoy that for a lifetime.

Thanks everyone! pottz, you are correct. Have to get over the fear of scratching it. Need to remind myself it is just a work bench. :)

it’s the first big dent or gouge that hurts the most.

That’s a beautiful bench. Terrific craftsmanship. Is the top maple?

I am not sure. My hardwood store had these butcher block counter tops for a really good price. So I bought one, cut it into 3 inch boards and lamented them back together to create the top. So there is no real grain direction. Hopefully this will make the top more stable.
