got tired of back pain…
When I was sawing finger or dovetail joints on my traditional Scandinavian workbench, I always ended up standing in a bed over position sawing. Since I am retired du to a neck operation this is especially for me no good.
So when I realized I had to cut a handful for my daughters confirmation gift, I decided it was time to quit whining and do something about it.
Two ways ahead a moxon or a benchtop bench, the bench on bench would give me a general chance of a higher work surface, so that became my choice for now.
It can also be brought on location work and clamped to any table top.
This post is from the Benchtop bench blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/41097
1. Benchtop bench MaFe style (with Festool clamping holes).
2. Simple materials, so it can be used hard and trashed once worn.
3. Threading rod and loving it.
4. The build up.
5. Bench dogs and holdfast.
6. This is what it is all about.
_Hope it can be to some inspiration,
