This Mini Work bench was a project i had been working on for my job the past few days. The company wanted a show piece for their show room of a traditional style woodworking bench. The bench is made with all wooden joinery using dowel stock as pins to join the half lapped pieces together. It also has 3 bench dogs on each side of the table and 2 in the vice. It is a completely functioning and very strong and heavy bench(mainly the vice) The vice weighs about 50lbs. The vice Is an antique and i am told it is over 50 years old, the bench is going to get beat up so it looks like it is old workbench and has been used. The bench stands roughly at 30” tall and is about 25” long and about 12” wide. It is hard to see the size of it through pictures but i put a few things on top of the bench to give some perspective. I would love to make one of these for myself it would make a great coffee table, this way i would be able to work on projects as i watch t.v. on the couch.
