1800s Carpenters Workbench

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Used for generations by Cabinetmakers, this authentic carpenter's workbench from circa 1900 makes a perfect dining or side table. The four legs are easy to cut down if desired to make a comfortable table height. For 20 years our own dining table has been an antique work bench. We use a large glass top with Gustav Stickley chairs around it. I have seen them used in many ways, as a wine and appetizer table, kitchen island or wide screen base. With it's simple honest style including exaggerated dove tail joinery these benches fit perfectly with many different decorating styles but have a character all their own. Made of solid hand-hewn lumber and showing 100 plus years of use give this antique personality and patina. There are large clamping vises and a recessed tool tray. The screws that adjust the vices are wood as well. It's also a size that is easy to use.
