Why buy a workbench, when a beginner woodworker can build his own? The design uses Douglas-fir with MDF surfaces. Instead of the usual front and tail vices, it incorporates pipe clamps into the top, front apron, and legs so that it can easily hold any size work piece. Plan includes a cut list, full-size and scale drawings, and a step-by-step companion article. Finished size is 28"D x 96"W x 35-1/2"H. Copyright 2012.
