of wide materials in the face vise. The top and base are attached with four 5" hex-head bolts with nuts and washers that are countersunk into the top and extend through the attachment blocks. The bench is now ready for finish.

Paint and Finish

All the panels and materials made in poplar are painted (Olde Century Colors "Cupboard Blue" acrylic latex). That includes the beaded panels, the face frame, the drawer fronts and the door. Paint two coats on all surfaces, sanding between coats. Once the p ainting was complete I could go back and add the moulding to lock in the beaded panels. That moulding is installed with mitered corners.

The finish on the top and all the tiger maple framing is an oil/varnish mixture I've used for years. (See "Finishing Formulas" in April 2007, issue #161). Two coats were applied over everything. That's right, everything - including the painted parts of the workbench.

Hang the door using light-duty T-hinges along with a wooden knob and door catch.

I envision many years of building furniture on this bench. I wish I had built a quality workbench years back. Not that it would have improved my work, but maybe my work habits. No more scattering tools in the shop. I now have a workbench that has storage. PW

Popping the grain. Two coats of an oil/varnish mixture is all the protection necessary for the bench. You don't want too much finish on the top. There's no need to have pieces sliding about.
