Bench For Sale



When we built the above bench for showcasing our vises at various events, we never thought we'd get so much interest in the bench itself. In fact, at the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event we participated in in Chicago last month, we had nearly as much interest in the bench as in the vises themselves!

We anticipate a similar response at the Woodworking in America event in St. Charles, IL in August.

So we are in the process of building a larger, second bench to meet some of the needs of this larger event. The bench will be for sale at the show.

The bench will be outfitted with our Benchcrafted Tail Vise and our new Glide Leg Vise. The top will be split down the middle like our travel bench (this offers numerous workholding advantages) and will feature square dog holes with wood dogs, various holdfast holes in the top and legs (two Gramercy holdfasts included) sliding deadman and shelf. The top dimensions will be approximately 24" x 84"x 4" thick. The bench will be available for pick-up at the end of the show.

The bench will be set up for right-handed woodworkers. That is, unless you are a left-hander and are particularly eager to get your hands on this bench (drop us a line, we haven't cut any wood yet).
