    Auxillary Workbench - Pics

    I undertook this project when, after learning to cut dovetails by hand, my back used to just ache. I thought about raising my bench, but I prefer it's current height for hand plane work. I was a bit of an impass. I found the basis for this bench in FWW and this is my version.



    I have construction shots and the build process outlined in my Blog.

    Thanks for looking.

    Really nice Thomas!
    I have seen this idea in some tips and tricks plans somewhere but never so well executed.
    Looking at your setup I can think of a dozen uses for for a table like that.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Nicely done.
