This rock-solid bench by Cecil Braeden combines the strength and rigidity of plywood with the reliability of mortise-and-tenon joinery. Unlike traditional hardwood benches, this one can be made without a jointer or planer, so it's perfect for woodworkers who are just starting out. The construction method can be adapted to any size or type of bench. Tips include how to get the most value out of your sheet goods.
