    Another Portable Workbench

    A while back I posted a portable work bench (that mounts on a DeWalt miter saw stand) that I made for my uncle.(Portable Workbench) I just recently completed a similar one for my Dad. The one I made for my uncle had two recessed "trays" on each side. This one only has the pencil holder. It is made of a piece of laminated maple bench top, mounted on a set of DeWalt miter saw stand brackets. It has been drilled with 3/4in dog holes. The hardware is from Veritas (bench pups and wonder pup). It was finished with 3 coats of lacquer.

    Very nice, Sean. I'm betting this one was a lot easier to make without the tool trays on each side like the last one.

    Thank you!

    You're right, those trays were a pain to make. When my Dad asked me to make this, he only wanted the pencil holder.

    Now that's a great idea. Very useful, and very nicely done!
