THANK YOU to http://lumberjocks.com/VillageCarpenter – I have driven by the Cloisters a million times, but until I read about it in her blog, I never considered going.

(pictures go here – but no joy in posting flickr pics, please click the link below)

The English Style workbench had no stretchers across the front or back – but on closer inspection, I think I found the mortises where they once were. It’s a very long bench and the stretchers and legs were a little light if you ask me.

Our tour guide could not verify that the tools/bench were original. And unfortunately I had to experience the shop behind plexiglass and by peering through windows.
