Fine Woodworking's Traditional Workbench Plan - by Chris Gochnour (Paperback)
about this item
The benchtop design and the tail vise are the key features of this workbench by Chris Gochnour. The top is beefy where it needs to be: along the back and front edges. It has a thick back apron, and a front section made up of a thick apron and an equally thick benchdog board. The top of the tail vise sits flush with the benchtop, so the dog holes in the vise can be placed very close to the front edge of the bench. This design makes for the most efficient use of dog holes when planing workpieces of all sizes.
