Carpenter's Bench

A rather faithful recreation of my Grandfather's circa 1940's Carpenter's Bench, but with Kreg pocket hole enhancement, better plywood materials, stronger glues, etc.
I still use the original and hope my own grandson gets as much use out of this new one.

General Notes

Very straightforward wood milling, pocket hole joinery and assembly. This 'plan' provided for inspiration only. The large surfaces are 3/4" and 1/2" birch-faced plywood. The boards for both carcass and drawers are pine, again in 3/4" and 1/2" thicknesses. The drawer bottoms are 5/16" birch-faced plywood. Roughly 24" wide x 12" deep x 16" high to take advantage of typical precut home center stock and low waste. NO tablesaw required.
