    It’s taken since January, but I’ve finally finished my version of Paul’s recent workbench series. The tool well is a little thinner than the current design (by about 4cm) as I wanted to match the overall depth of the bench to another in my garage.

    It’s mostly C24 pine from a builder’s merchant, but I was able to find some pretty decent timber.

    There’s an additional end vise, as my young daughter likes to work in the garage with daddy (though at the moment it’s mostly just drawing on pieces of wood in a vise – hence fitting two).

    I also added a drawer, made from a dovetailed box, with a bottom from laminated sections of scrap pine. The drawer front is the section cut from the front apron, and screwed onto the drawer box.

    I didn’t want to cut dog holes in the top of the bench, but extra clamping options are always useful. So, I routed a set of small mortices in the rear face of the main worktop, and they can be used with clamps.
