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.
"Rockler Rocks. They have the best customer service.I am disabled and elderly so when I receive great service it takes me back to the days when everyone gave good service. Thank You Rockler you are the best. Keep up the good work." -
