    Portable Workbench

    Its been a long time since I've posted anything, but I'm going to try to start it back up.

    Here is a portable workbench that I made for my uncle. It is from a piece of maple bench top. It on a set of Dewalt miter saw stand brackets. This is so my uncle can have a work bench when he is doing trim carpentry at people's houses. The dog holes match the standard spacing, and the hardware is from Veritas. The pencil holder was my thing, but the trays on each side were by his request.

    Sean that's just cool. I've made temp ones quite often, but never anything like that. Might just have to made me one for the job site.

    I like it. I especially like the pencil tray. Question, though. What is the 'standard spacing' for dog holes? Always wondered, and where do you start measuring from? From the vise dog?

    Nice idea Sean, and great execution. An idea woth borrowing!
    What Carol said: is standard dog spacing 6-7 inches?

    Yes Sir, that is nice. Sure would work better than my piece of 3/4" press board attached to 40 year old B&D Workmate. Very nice idea and well done.

    Super cool! What a great idea and execution. Tailored to your needs and it looks plenty stout.

    That's very cool! It would make a good top for a fixed workbench, too.
