A classic Shaker bench with plenty of workspace. Made of cherry and maple, and accented with traditional milk paint, this Shaker bench features a big 84-in. x 26 in. footprint. Michael Pekovich and Matt Kenney teamed up to build this classic for Fine Woodworking's very own shop. A durable twin-screw vise and sliding dead man make supporting a variety of workpieces easy – and with a whopping 10 drawers, storing all your favorite hand tools becomes a simple affair.

Hardworking features rooted in history. This DVD plus bonus digital plan not only show you how to build this workhorse for your shop, it also takes a look at 19th century Shaker workbenches that inspired this build. And that's not all you'll find in this intermediate-level project DVD.

Topics include:

  • Drawbored mortise-and-tenon joinery
  • Milling and fitting beaded panels
  • Milk paint application and base glue up
  • Benchtop glue up and vise installation
  • Web frame assembly for drawers
  • Machine cut dovetails
  • Building a sliding dead man
  • Applying a traditional oil finish
