I finally got time to build me a long awaited project. Its made of four layers thick mdf with douglas fir edging. Rear jaw of vise integrated into the edging. The plugs are Padauk, they came out great. Half laps on the stretchers.

Good job! – Sure is better than the one I an currently using.

Ok – could you please tell us (me) how you were able to get a flat surface over a distance which appears to be about 5, or 6ft in length? This is where mine fails.

thanks muchly

Matts_dad- The pics DO make the table look deceptively large…but it’s really only 88”x32”

Where did you get the wheel levelers? Are those casters the ones designed for contractors saws? They look very useful, giving you the ability to move your bench and also lower it when its in use.

Thanks matt. 559 are for contractor saws and band saws. Woodcrraft has them for about forty bucks.

Great bench! Found the “Retracting Casters” on woodcraft. Also, any plans, per se on the design/ construction? Looks great.

With four layers of mdf it’s definitely going to be solid and heavy…..nice job! shelf space underneath gets filled up fast i bet too.
