This is my first woodworking bench. I made it out of hard rock maple with no metal except for the Rockler vises. The frame joints are tapered mortise and tenons through a vertical dovetail held tight with keyed mortise and tenons. The top's end caps are blind mortise and tenon joints to hold the top together. I built a jig and used a router to true up the table top. I finished the the bench with Teak Oil.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
