This was a design I came up with to use my beech slab, temporarily, in my front workroom. In stark contrast to my usual engineering methods the design became more complex as I went along. The top and vise are 8/4 beech and the face is 8/4 maple. The framing is 2×4’s planed down to reduce bulk. The back legs are canted out at 15 degrees. The frame, near the vise, sticks up 3/8″ above the slab to act as planing stops. I have a larger bench in the garage but his has turned into my primary workbench. The vise, top and face are easily romoved. Very portable.
