OK, I have started my workbench build and realized immediately that I needed to make some adjustments to the design for my own peculiarities/beginner status etc. I recently completed a 3-night course in Sketchup for Woodworkers and it got me to thinking that I could use that knowledge to design my bench; much easier said than done! Has anyone on this site already accomplished this and willing to share/post their Sketchup drawing to the site. If not, I am going to tackle the project and show my results after I attend Paul’s foundational course next week. Can’t wait!

Jeff, drop Greg Merritt a PM https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/members/gman3555/
He is real good at that sort of thing, and I’m sure he will help if he can.

I’m just finishing my SketchUp model of the workbench I’m building from Paul’s design. Here is a screen shot. I’ve Laminated the top sections and aprons. It will be a slow weekend warrior build. I used the measurements I found on the Blog “Workbench Series”. The vise just arrived in the mail the other day! I can’t wait to start using the bench.

I’m going to “dimension” it out in the next day or two. I’m building it “lefty”. Let me know if this might work then I could upload the sketch up file?? or just send me a PM.

Laminated tops, lots of shavings, and tons of fun (stress relief).

Yeah I love making shavings. Lots more of them hear…..https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/discussions/topic/workbench-progress/page/21/#post-11733

That last post was so rough – I knew I could do better – so here goes
Here are some snapshots from my workbench sketchup file:
And attached is the latest version of my Sketchup file.

Sounds good Jeff, enjoy buddy. 🙂3 February 2015 at 4:44 pm #124298Christopher HinsdaleParticipant
I have waffling over wether to make a single or double sided bench. I like your design so much that it settled my dilemma. Thank you for posting the drawings.
Couple of questions if you don’t mind, what did you use for the floor of the well? I’m considering 3/4″ Bamboo plywood (maybe). Are those redwood 4x4s? How did that workout?

Hahaha I opened the pic and instantly right clicked to try panning around.
