Heavy-Duty Workbench

Heavy-Duty Workbench

You can find almost all of the materials needed to build the workbench on page 30 of ShopNotes No. 89 at your local hardware store or lumberyard. But the vise I used to complete the project is a 9" quick-release wood vise (22876) from Rockler.

Finish Information: I used a stain mixture of 8 oz. of boiled linseed oil, 1 tsp. of Raw Sienna, 1 tsp. of Burnt Sienna, 1 tsp. of Van Dyke Brown, 3 tsp. Yellow Ochre and the finish was General Finishes One-Step. The project was built using Straight-grained Red Oak, Riftsawn Red Oak/MDF core Plywood.
