Some of the nicest benches I have ever seen have been on this site,and I have been doing this kind of work a long time.I too am in the process of putting together the materials for a bench.I have enough 3×6 maple and cherry for a 26×96”x4 1/2” top and some 5×5 ash for the base.I’m shooting for a modified shaker style bench with drawers in the base. I want it to be heavy.I’m undecided about the vises though,I’m thinking just a front vise and a wagon vise because I have 2 older front vises and I’ve already taken one of them apart to use some of the parts to make my own wagon vise.It won’t be a benchcraft but it should still work.

Good luck with your build and check out some of the benches here on LJ,it’ll blow your mind
