My Woodworking Workbench
Except for the
vises and the use of dimensional lumber for the base, construction of this
workbench was all performed with hand tools. The top is solid
oak and the base is spruce. I've mounted two Record vises for work holding. There are
3/4 inch dog holes in the top and in the rear legs that I also use for
holdfasts. The workbench design allows me to breakdown it down to get it out
of the basement. Although wood glue was used, the
fasteners holding the wood covers to the vises and the vises to the
bench are the only ones used in constructing the workbench. There
are links below to construction images.
Here is an image showing the larger side vise.
And, here is a closeup of the wedged tenons that connect the leg trusses to the stringers.
