In this project, Im making a traditional woodworking workbench.

I’ve wanted to build one of these workbenches for some time now. In fact, in this post, I talk more about how long I’ve had the lumber in my shop for this project and what my hangups about it are. I purchased these plans from Jay Bates. They were very detailed and spelled out everything from the dimensions to the shopping list you can take with you to the home improvement store to buy just the right materials.
