Workbench by Richard King
Pine bench with leg vice: a medical Co diction requires that I sit as much as possible to do my work, hence the cutout in the front apron. The vice chop is hard (sugar) maple and is lined with leather. The top is 4″ thick. Great bench! Absolutely rock solid!

Workbench by Daniel Willis
I used regular lumber yard SPF for my build. The legs were laminated of 2×4 to get square legs once planed to size. The aprons might be a bit narrower than Paul’s but they work. There’s a drawer that I finished just the other day. Hand cut dovetails in the drawer, loose fitting compared to others but they work. And they’ll get better with time. The drawer handle is big and beefy. I like it that way. Feels heavy and solid in the hand. It came from a piece of maple the tow truck driver left behind when he hauled away the container when we moved here last summer. Red leather for the vise jaws came from a cow hide I purchased while deployed. A port visit to Souda Bay and a little leather shop in a back alley. My strop is also made from that cow. The bench has the sharpening shelves on the left size but no tool well in the back. Yet, that may come. Until then, I’m going to have fun building boat parts at this bench. Thanks Paul and team.
Wallclock by Kent Hansen
Walnut and oak christmas gift
Wooden Plane by Sharon Casa
I made this plane in preparation for the Shaker-style bench project. The iron was from an unused block plane and the wood was from a firewood log–spalted (fungus eaten) maple. I never used a wooden plane before, so this was a revelation to me. I tested it on a 3/4″ thick piece of pine. It worked like a champ, despite my side pieces not having precise housing depths.
