I built this Bench Top Bench using mortise & tenon joinery for the legs, aprons, feet, and stretchers. I made a template and routed in the hardware for the vice. I used biscuit joinery for the top and to attach the vice to the top. I added three 3/4" oak dowel pegs to the base for easy-on, easy-off access onto the dogholes of my workbench. As you can see in the final picture (prior to me adding the pegs) I’m standing straight up while performing a routing task at a comfortable level.
