Veritas® Bench Kit Components - Woodworking
Veritas® Bench Kit Components - Woodworking

This bench design gives you an exceptionally solid bench with truss-rod construction that lets you tune climate-induced slackness out of it at any time. The bench trestle is a straightforward design – all butt joints, no mortise and tenon work – but more rigid than any other. The plan includes instructions for side skirts with dog holes so you can clamp along the side of the bench as well as along the top.

Although any commercial vise can be used, the bench design is ideally suited to the Veritas Twin-Screw Vise (05G12.21), a full-width end vise that has 12" clamping capacity and can be used for side or top clamping with no racking, even when clamping in a single dog row. Any other commercial vise can also be used as a front vise, although this would be for convenience only, since the end vise will perform all normal vise functions.

The scaled plan includes cutting list and complete assembly instructions, plus instructions for side skirts with dog holes so you can clamp along the side of the bench as well as along the top.

A. The Deluxe Bench Kit includes plan, truss rods, nuts, bolts and screws, plus two pre-drilled laminated maple slabs – the most difficult part of the construction. Each slab is 10-3/4" x 72-3/4" x 2" thick with a double row of 3/4" dia. dog holes that result in a symmetrical 7-3/4" grid. Slabs weigh 40 lb each. You supply the rest of the wood.

B. The Basic Bench Kit includes plan, truss rods, nuts, bolts and screws for construction of a bench with a hardwood top. Wood not included.

Made in Canada.
