Workbench Tidbit

I have been very busy with teaching classes and building work benches for Woodcraft. This week I am working on my workbench. Here is a peek at the base.

6×6 hard maple legs, 2×6.5″ hard maple rails. All draw bore pin mortise and tenon construction and soon to have a sassafras shelf.

I will have a short video showing some of the steps in the next day or two.

  1. mate, Thats the Dolf Lungran of base for a workbench!!!! HF!! A bit of overkill I would say but hey whatever flicks your switch!

    • All the extra mass translated into better planing and the ability to take thicker passes with hand planes. I personally don’t think there is such a thing as overkill when it comes to a work bench. The one draw back is the inability to use hold-fasts in the legs, they only work in thicknesses less than 4″ I could always counter bore the dog holes but for now I use lee valley hold downs on the legs. Hopefully Dolf would be proud.
