Vise is on.. Still haven't decided how I want to keep it from rotating and how to lock the bottom. #workbench #workbenchbuild #woodworking

Side rail 4/4, by far the hardest to joint the edge true! This @samuraicarpenter #workbenchbuild is wearing me out but I love being back out in the #workshop #woodworking again! #inchbyinchisacinch #yardbyyardishard

Finally finished my Paulk workbench,I debated just buying the fastcap smaller one but in the end I'm glad I built my own full size..If you haven't looked into these I must say its a very well thought out design and went together seemlessly with minimal hiccups...kudos to Ron on this for sure ...If you're not inclined to doing it your self you can get smaller version precut @quality_tools_and_hardware @kaizen_inserts @thepaulkworkbench #workbenchbuild

Had some questions about the planing stop on the end of my bench, so I figured I should show it in more detail. I first saw this in Matt Kenney's "Matt's Monster Workbench" article in Fine Woodworking magazine. Since then, I've seen end mounted planing stops on other benchs, but not using cams. The cams make adjustments fast and easy, even one handed. My addition is the angled spacer, which tilts the stop at a (roughly) 2° angle, helping to push the work piece down against the bench top.
I absolutely love this bench design, and it works perfectly for me.

It's finally time to build my bench. I found this top in an abandoned building a few years ago. It is a monster at 30"x96" and 3" thick. Easily 250lbs. It was covered in some sort of black paint or tar so I've just spent the last 2 hours scraping it off. It might be done since I kinda like the way it looks. This thing has been in use for a long time by the look of it and surprisingly enough, its only been drilled into once and looks like one small slip with a circular saw. It has a ton of small cuts though. Like a cutting board. #sawhorsewoodworks #workbench #workbenchbuild #butcherblock #patina

AND in the red corner, measuring at 2 feet wide and 8 feet long, made of douglas fir and sapele, featuring an angled quick release leg vise, and weighing in at God-knows-what, it's my NEWLY COMPLETED WORKBENCH!! Many more photos and explanations to come on Instagram and Facebook. If you can't wait that long for the latter, visit my website and click "The MTJS Workbench" under the "Tools & Sundries" menu and get all nerdy with me. 🤓 I'm super excited!

Trimming off one end of the bench top! 4.5" thick solid #whiteoak love this part!

For the first time in my life, I have a (fairly) proper workbench. 61 inches long, 24 inches deep and 39 inches wide. I still need to drill the dog holes and install a couple shallow drawers under the shelf, but at least I have a bench.

This is what happens when the bench your building for the customer becomes the bench your using! At least it's tested before delivery! #messybench #messyworkbench #rouboworkbench #benchcrafted #workbenchbuild

This cutoff from my workbench top has made a nice little shelf. Located directly above my workbench, it keeps all the valuables off the work surface. Not going to be any sag in this shelf.... #arnoldwoodworks #woodworking #woodwork #woodworker #woodshop #workbench #workbenchbuild #finelycrafted #finewoodworking

The workbench is finally complete! It took entirely too long to finish (procrastination mostly) but it feels good to get it done. With the cast iron legs and 4" thick top, it's a sturdy 380 lbs. I painted the front and tail vise hardware to match the detailing on the cast iron legs. Was even able to incorporate my logo into the leg stretchers. #arnoldwoodworks #workbench #workbenchbuild #woodwork #woodworking #woodshop #woodworker #finewoodworking #finelycrafted #woodcraft #castiron

First workbench for the #woodshop built around 18 months ago. A simple design, but I needed something to get me started. Only construction timber and MDF bur it's done a good job so far and doesn't look anywhere as clean as that now! #woodworking #woodworkingshop #workbench #workbenchbuild #pine #mdf #mybiglittleshop

Legs for the workbench all complete. I think I must have done 1000 passes with the crosscut sled to get this done.

Drawers are done! One will hold drill bits and the other probably more drill stuff as it's my drill press stand! 👍😊 Just simple drawers from plywood and the handles are out of scrap cherry 😊❤️🍒

And the last of the side rails is finally edge-jointed! Took nearly all day to do all 4. If I'd waxed the jointer first thing I likely could have them planed to final width by now! #learningfrommymistakes #woodworking #samuraicarpenterworkbench #workbenchbuild

Three of four side rails of the @samuraicarpenter #workbench are edge-jointed. Boy I'm pooped and it's not even lunch time! #woodworking #woodworkingasahobbyishardwork #workbenchbuild #woodworkersworkingtogether

If your shop space permits it, the @woodwhisperer torsion box dead flat assembly table is da bomb for working on. No telling how much weight I put on this thing on a regular basis. Currently there are 4 hard maple bench tops for the @samuraicarpenter #workbenchbuild plus 4 side rails and it doesn't flinch! #woodworking

Well the flush trim router bit made quick work of what the @festool_usa TS-75 wasn't able to get. This @samuraicarpenter #workbenchbuild is a massive undertaking, then add the fact that two are being built concurrently! WOW! #funstuff #woodworking #woodworkersworkingtogether

I built a workbench!!!! So easy too! This was a pre-cut kit from Menards we got last fall for just $50! So worth it too as it's super sturdy, easy to put together if you know how to use a drill (I do!), and storage for tools underneath! So excited we have a clean garage and now a workspace where we can finally get some wood projects done in! #builtitmyself #menards #workbenchbuild #timetobuild

Finally made a dedicated spot for the x-carve. It has been hogging my workbench since I put it together, so I'm glad to finally have some space to work. Everything was scrap wood, except the plywood for the top and bottom shelf.

With much anticipation, I've finally received my @woodwhisperer Thread Taps order! I am excited to get to use these on the @samuraicarpenter workbench, specifically for my Veritas twinscrew vise installations! #woodworking #woodworkersworkingtogether #samuraicarpenterworkbench #workbenchbuild
