This is my workbench inspired by the works of Lon Shleining. In maple and mahogany. The two front door are made with marquetry.

what is the height of the front of your benchtop? i'm thinking of adding an apron to the front of my bench and am wondering how much height i can give it before it becomes impractical when i need to clamp boards to the benchtop.

beautiful bench, btw.
