About

This beautifully chopped and gnarled carpenters workbench sits firmly on its collapsible trestle-style oak base. The base is handcut, through-tenoned and pegged together with the ends joined with two massive stretchers that pull tight on wooden keys. The bench surface is a massive oak slab, 3” thick with a 6” wide tool trough at the rear. The bench has two vises. An end or “tail” vise on the right hand side, and a front or “shoulder” vise on the left-hand front, both of which operate on sturdy wooden screws. The removable vise screws protrude 5" from the shoulder face and 4" at the tail The “arm” of the shoulder vise is beautifully dovetailed into its end cap, to resist the pressure that will be applied to it. These have been used as side tables, sofa tables, serving tables in a restaurant, and TV consoles. Not surprisingly, they also function extremely well as workbenches in a home workshop.
