Well by popular demand some people have asked me to repost some projects from my past.(my apologies to you if you have seen this before).
I made this Shaker bench awhile ago (2001-2) back in the days of Badger Pond. It is mostly hard maple with cherry accents. There is very little hardware in this bench, 6 brass screws for the top pf the tail vise and 6 lag bolts used on the end caps.
I was inspired to make a traditional bench with an authentic tail vice and leg vice. The wood screws were made by Howard card, he no longer makes them.
I find that the bench has fit perfectly into my work style over the years.
It’s based on a design from the Landis Workbench book with some minor modifications..
I hope you enjoyed seeing my bench.
