This workbench is built out of hard maple. For a long time I couldn’t decide what kind of workbench to build. I was thinking about a MDF top and some less expensive legs. The inspiration was Fine Woodworking magazine (workshop solution). Their’s was little different. I used screws covered with nice wenge plugs instead of dovetails. The legs are mortise and tenon joints, through tenon is reinforced with walnut wedges. The size: 63″ long, 26″ wide, 34″ tall. There are two workbench vises from grizzly, top slab 1 3/4 thick (on sale at woodcraft) front and side apron 1 3/4″ x 5.5″. The total cost was around $450 for materials.
