Bench Vise Stand
Designed to tackle the toughest tasks, this strong, stable, and easy-to-build stand is a great home for your bench vise.
Your bench vise needs a solid base that can stand up to sawing, pounding, and torquing on the vise handle. The stand you see here can handle it. For starters, the stand is made by gluing up multiple layers of MDF to create a lot of mass. It’s designed to rest solidly on the floor and anchor to the wall. These features make the stand able to absorb vibration and redirect all the force of pounding and sawing to the floor and wall. Extra storage the stand provides is a welcome bonus. The open shelves hold a lot of tools and supplies. And the custom racks on the sides keep your tools close at hand. After a weekend’s worth of work, you’ll finally have a permanent home for that shop workhorse.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
