The top of the bench is independent of the cabinet portion.
The top sits on top of the legs and is actually separated from the underlying
cabinet.  The top is held in position and
alignment by two dowel rod pegs on the front legs and simply sits on the back
legs. This allows the top to float during expansion/contraction
with no stress on the legs  or cabinet
portion.
24 inch Hovarter face vise with a 7 inch wide bubinga front jaw. The front apron is flush with the the front legs to allow utilization of the leg surfaces for clamping in both the face vise and the tail vise.
 
The workbench includes 20 drawers and a storage cabinet which are accessed from both sides.
Lie-Nielsen tail vise with a custom sized maple/bubinga case.
14 inch wide pattern makers vise

My ultimate workbench-- finally finished! The bench has a tail vise, a 24" face vise, and a patternmaker's vise. Overall size is 36" x 92". The top is 4" thick laminated hard maple with a 5" bubinga apron. With all the vise hardware, the bench weighs approx 1000-1100 lbs. The cabinet's underside was reinforced to allow use of a special low profile dolly that was built. The dolly can be placed under the bench, allowing it to be easily moved around the shop if needed. The bench was constructed in 3 components (cabinet, legs, and top) and can be easily disassembled into the components to allow for transport and reassembly.

Would you be willing to provide these? I will be designing my project in Google Sketchup first (my most valuable program next to email).

I built a workbench a number of years back but over the years I have learned that I am not happy with it. I would really like to dismantle and rebuild it using your design. If you could email me on any details you have on your bench that would help me out I would greatly appreciate it.
Fortunately I will be able to reuse a lot of parts from my first bench. I have a pattern makers vice, front vice and a tail vice so im well on the way.

This is one of the most elegant, yet sturdy, workbenches I have seen so far, and I have been looking at workbenches for the last few months. Incredible attention to details and excellent ideas to allow everything to "float" and be able to assemble and disassemble back together.

I would greatly appreciate any advise/plans you are willing to share to help me finalize my design.

JonJLLJC JonJLLJC writes: to EdSaldana: To attach the end aprons, I cut a ¾” wide dado in the end grain of the table top and also in the aprons (don’t extend dados to end where they would be visible). Position of the dados has to be perfect so that the top of the table and top of aprons are perfectly aligned. I then cut a maple spline to go in the dados. Make the spline a tight fit—with the spline in place, the end aprons should be held in good position. I sealed the end grain, apron, spline and dados with some Danish oil and applied some paste wax to the spline before attaching the end aprons to the top. While the splines hold the end aprons in fairly good position, I secured them with lag screws and washers. Used Forstner bit to recess head of screws and washers into apron. The holes for the screws are oversize through the aprons to allow for wood movement. I then used maple wood “plugs” to fill the whole over the lag screws, gluing in place and sanding smooth

If you give me your E-mail- I will forward you more detailed info on how I designed and built the bench.

It might be difficult to think about getting it scuffed and dinged while using it, cause it really looks like a work of art. It does look like it has been designed to be as practical as it is beautiful.

You had mentioned having some construction notes and information -- do you still have that information available, and how can I get a copy?

Excellent work!

One question though,"The outside edge surrounding the bench, is that another species altogether or is it stain?" Strike that from the record I just read the body of the bench description.

PelhamPete PelhamPete writes: What an absolutely gorgeous piece! Bravo.
I'll be very curious how the top in particular ages given the problem with cross-grain construction (i.e., the seasonal expansion & contraction due to swings in the moisture content). I built a bench similar to your's ONLY in the sense that I locked the entire bench top within a frame of huge lumber (in my case it was 4" x 3" maple) and therefore I ended up needing to seal the thing in varnish to prevent the top from going through the whole compression/expansion cycle and in the process, presumably, cracking. So far so good (10 years plus) but I do wish I hadn't ended up needing to apply the varnish … my workpieces slide around too much for my liking.

rk10007 rk10007 writes: Jon,
I guess it's unanimous. Beautiful job. I am curious, though, and I think we can all learn a bit more. Having built this beauty, what would you change, what would you do differently, how would you tweak the design if you were to start from scratch, what are your regrets, and what was the most important thing you learned in the design and construction phases of the project? Lots of questions, I know, but it would be of great value to those of us embarking on this type of project. Thanks and congratulations,
Ron

JonJLLJC JonJLLJC writes: Thanks for everyone's comments. It really makes one feel good and raises one's enthusiasm when you get positive feedback from fellow woodworkers. Like most of you, I am a weekend warrior, an amateur woodworker trying to get better, learn new things, and have fun in my workshop. I really did enjoy finally building the bench that I had been thinking about (and putting off building) for over 7 years. While I am very proud of my bench, it really is nothing compared to the real works of art and talent which are on display in this gallery. I only hope that I can someday become as talented as many of you are. I guess the amount of interest and comments simply confirms that if there is one project that nearly every woodworker wants to do is to build, it is a better workbench.

For many years, I thought about and planned my dream workbench. I read every book, blog, website and, magazine article that I could find to help come up with ideas. My bench represents what, for my needs and in my opinion, is the best features of all the benches I read about and saw. Your situation may be different.

I would love to share my ideas and experiences to anyone who is interested in my bench or interested in building their own. My problem is I really do not know the best way to open a line of communication with those who want to learn more details about my build. At this point, I do not have a set of plans. I built it with notes and rough sketches. I learned a lot in my research and even more with the build (meaning trials and errors). I already know a few changes I wish I had made or thought about. Do not put it off any longer! It is very fulfilling to routinely use and enjoy a piece that you made.

I would love to talk to or e-mail anyone who is interested in my bench or in building their own! Just don’t know the best way to do it yet. May try to put together some plans to share.

P.S. my shop is usually a mess and, yes, I have already proudly scratched the bench.

JonJLLJC JonJLLJC writes: I_SED8M-- The end aprons are not glued on. Rather, I dadoed groves on the apron and bench and placed a long wood spline in the grooves to secure it in place. Lag bolts with washers and large holes to allow for expansion and contraction hold it in place. The top can expand and contract while the end aprons "float" on the spline.
