This traditional-style workbench has everything you'd expect... a large worksurface and built-in vises to hold your workpieces.
A good workbench must accomplish a few things. First, it must be sturdy. It’s the foundation you work on, and if it moves, your work will be shaky. Second, it must have sufficient work holding. A pair of vises and a series of shop made dogs offer all the work holding you’ll ever need. Finally, a large area to work that is free of tools and clutter is a necessity. A built-in tool tray and tool holder means the spacious worksurface will always be clean, while your tools are still close at hand.

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.
