    I thought I would share my workbench that I built using the design in Paul’s book. I followed the plans pretty closely with the exception of the bench top, it is 1.5 inches wider then in the book. So far it has served me well and I really enjoy using it. The height is just right, about 37″. The end vise was an after thought after I build the bench. I needed a way to secure boards flat to the bench top without using clamps, so I added the vise and a few dog holes.

     

    Thanks for looking, it is also posted at lumberjocks.com with more pictures – http://lumberjocks.com/projects/74376

    Nice job Doug, looks great. I have just started mine, how much dose the bench top overhang the legs for the end vise please.

    You mention the height of your bench, Doug. How tall are you?

    I have developed a bizarre “paralysis by analysis” psychosis about bench heights, why someone chose that height, and how it relates to their size.

    Great looking bench, by the way.

    Ken – Mine is only a 12″ overhang which turned out not be enough. I had to drill some holes in the top rail of the leg assembly.

    Thom – I misspoke, my bench is 35″ high. I am 6 feet tall. 35″ on me is right at my wrist when my arms are to my side.
