Sturdy is an understatement! We designed this workbench plan to pass the the most rigid standards you could apply to a bench…and then some. That’s why we use it in the Woodsmith shop!
The massive mortise and tenon frame forms an extremely rigid foundation. The laminated top is a woodworker’s dream — large, very solid, and with plenty of clamping options, like a front vise and tail vise, both with opposing dog holes. This woodworking plan appeared in Woodsmith magazine No. 173
