I would like to submit a bench for your workbench of the month.  I have also been writing an article forwww.wkfinetools.com.  The screw you sent is perfection in motion, I was very impressed with the craftsmanship.

This bench project started about 15 years ago.  It is made of Red Oak.  The top is a solid slab 4-1/4″ thick by 19″ wide and 7-1/2 foot long.  The legs are made of glued up 2x Stock.  It is inspired by Andre Roubo’s plate 279 bench.  The leg vise is made from a Lake Erie wood screw.  The tail vise has steel tracks and a steel screw.  I used a 2/3 Danish Oil – 1/3 Poly finish.  The assembled weight is 342 pounds.

Thanks,
Will Myers  – Boonville, North Carolina
