Scandinavian workbench restore
One legged dead man walking…
Ok some awful undertones in that name…
Actually it is just a simple dead man for the new old workbench.
Just a long piece of wood, not sure but think teak.
Marking the center line.
Drilling holes for every two inch or five cm.
And a little dowel that fits the holes with a cross dowel that makes it easy to pull out.
Use the end vice to hold it.
Get the idea?
Now it is just to use it.
I udsed it for planing some long boards and some window frames today, it works like a gem.
In next and last part I will end up with a little funny history tour dating back to 1414, since I only have few minutes here tonight.
Hope it can be to some inspiration.
