Free on Friday, #2

elcome to the second in a series of give-always at This month, we have a DVD from the kind people at Fine Woodworking magazine. This DVD should interest a number of woodworkers because it shows how Matt Kenney made a gigantic workbench. Called simply enough, “Monster Workbench,” this video shows the step-by-step process of building this behemoth and includes the digital plans needed for constructing it.

One day I’d like to have a bench like this. Made of hard maple, it is designed for both the hand tool and power tool woodworker. It features a large twin screw vise, an adjustable plane stop, and holes strategically located for hold fasts. Best of all, Matt presents a “stress free” process for flattening the large top – something I need to see since flattening is what keeps me from making a bench like this.

The DVD runs 34 minutes and is currently sale priced at for $22.95. Read more about the DVD by clicking here. One lucky woodworker will win it free of charge.

Here is how this will work. I’ll close submissions at noon Central time on Saturday, August 6th, and will update this post with the winner’s name as soon as I can. The winner will be chosen with the help of An email will then be sent asking for the winner’s mailing address. I’ll forward that to FWW who will then ship the DVD.

One submission per email, and this promotion is limited to residents of the USA and Canada. Good luck and a BIG THANK YOU to Fine Woodworking magazine!

And the winner is…
