The workbench top and aprons are made of 2×12’s (actual: 1-1/2″ x 11-1/4″) cut to 7′ long. I’m in the process of adding a quick-release vise to it. I used “select” pine boards for almost all of the lumber because it has very few knots and square edges as opposed to the typical rounded over edges on construction grade lumber. Sometimes I like to say: I have more dollars than sense :-) It’s not always true, but…

I also watched Bill Schenher’s saw bench videos and liked them very much. The benches are very similar. Here’s a link to his playlist on YouTube:

I’ll post some pictures of my saw benches as soon as I get the workbench off of them…like I said, I’m adding a vise :-)
