I've been putting up with my old workbench for years now so I decided enough was enough and that it was time I built a proper bench.  I went trhrough lots of different designs form many sources - I even tried desiging my own from scratch.  Then I saw the Paul Sellers workbench build on You Tube and I knew I'd found my new bench.  Whereas most of the designs I found seem to have abandoned the apron and try to use the full wide of the bench front a a rear vise jaw, this design is a bit different.  I'm more and more avoiding machinery in my workshop so this is definitely biased towards hand tools.  It's 39" high, 6 feet long and 3 feet deep.  All that's holding it together are one coach bolt and one hardwood wedge on each leg.  It's absolutely rock solid and it only cost me about £100 ($160) to build.  I did already have the vise though.
