After attempting to carve on my regular workbench for a few hours, I quickly realized my back didn’t like that too much! I needed a surface that would bring my work up to a more comfortable level. Rather than building a whole new bench I decided to build a removable mini-bench that could clamp down to my regular bench and bring my work up to that height, but could easily be removed and stored when not in use. The top measures 36” x 14” x 3” thick and with the addition of the base and the cast iron end vise, it is heavy! It stores in the base of my existing workbench. I made the entire project from some left over hard maple I had around the shop. I intend to use it for all kinds of detail work, carving, stringing, planing small parts etc. Feel free to comment or leave feedback as usual!
