I have read a number of work bench builds, knowing I would finally build one to suit my needs. The top is 25 1/2" by 67." The base is 23 1/2" by 53 1/2." It's made out of douglas fir 2x4s (top), 2x6s (stretchers) and 4x6s (legs) from Home Depot. It uses mortise and tenon joinery in the base with pegged ends and through bolts holding the stretchers. The top is covered with screwed down cheap laminate flooring and edged in poplar. The laminate is easy to replace and easy to scrape off paint and glues drops. Before attaching the laminate, the top was flattened with a homemade router sled. The front vise is a Rockler 9" quick release. The tail vise is the small Woodcraft kit model. Rockler work bench casters make it easy to move it around my garage. The vise jaws are made from poplar and wood scraps I had. The electrical strip is a HF model with a 15' cord.
