    Yes, it’s simple & it holds wood every way that you need. I didn’t mention I’d put a full width, adjustable height planing stop on the end. The stop would be the most complicated thing about the whole project. BTW, plywood, OSB, etc. make an extremely rigid bench base & it’s the easiest thing to make if you have the guy at Home Depot saw it up for you. I wish more people would emphasize the advantages of panels for bench bases. There’s way too many wobbling stick bases out there.

    No, Matthias is OCD, you just have a mild case of perfectionism, I think.

    Excellent, this is yet another very simple bench design where one doesn’t have to go crazy building something formal.

    in most cases that cleat is held in some kind of front vise so a second clamp isn’t needed. Sometimes just the front vise and the stop is sufficient. I like the positive registration the cleat provides up against the top plus it keeps it square. Not that that is real important, call it OCD!

    Good information.

    Make a simple bench from (2) 30″ wide solid core doors, 3/4″ plywood & some 2×2. Make a box w/ one door as the top, the other door as an apron & the ply making the back side & both ends. Hold everything together by screwing 2×2 in the corners. Set the box on (2) 30″ lengths of 4×4 to form a toe kick. Get (3) heavy duty F clamps & convert them to holdfasts by removing the fixed ends & secure the screw ends to the bar. Put slots in the top and front apron for the holdfasts.

    Hi Shannon, I’m still working my way through all your videos and enjoying them very much.

    I have a question about the planing stop. In the demonstrations you showed I don’t see how the cleat is needed. Are there other ways of using the stop where the cleat would actually come in to play?

    Great advise Shannon!

    I’m still working off my out feed table. Would I love to have a bench like yours, you bet. The one thing that you learn form working off of a less than ideal surface is creative clamping techniques.

    I can wholeheartedly concur! Your videos are just great. There’s not much beginner advice on woodworking with handtools out there that has the quality you provide here.

    Great video Shannon. I’ve been slowly moving more towards hand tools and have found Kari Hultman and you (along with others) to be very helpful.
    Thanks a lot.

    Great video once again. Thanks.

    LOL I think I’m blushing

    It’s tips like those why I love your videos so much! And you don’t repeat yourself all the time and condense the information down to what is really needed to understand the techniques you demonstrate. Plus it doesn’t hurt that you’re a all around amiable guy ?
