My winter project, a new bench for my workshop. The base is built from red and white oak. The drawer fronts, leg vise and the deadman are made from Jatoba. The top is laminated from 8/4 poplar with curly maple outer faces and accents throughout. The top is 30" x 72" and 4-3/4" thick. The base is 30" x 48" with an overall height of 34 inches. I also made all the components for the gate vise.

Design or Plan used: My own design

I had this mental picture of a hybrid between the "Not So Big Workbench" and Marc Spagnuolo's take on the Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo... And using HR maple, and Jatoba accents... And then I come up on this... Very similar to what I'm planning on building lol. Beautiful job.
