I have been building Custom workbenches over the past three years. I wanted to create an American Made product that would last for years to come and be useful for personal or family projects. The benches are versatile and can be used as a basic garage bench, but can also be modified as an intermediate wood workers bench for those that do not wish to spend thousands to see if they like building intricate projects.

I began in my garage and have progressed to a commercial space. My goal is to have my benches in one of ten homes in the next ten years.

Very cool benches, you kind of wrapped up most of the designs in those three different types. Nice job. I like the first ones.

Nice benches.

That’s a pretty lofty goal you’ve set for yourself. Dream big, they say!

Nice looking benches, I have a design question on the woodworking one though.
Why do the dog holes in the table not line up with the dog holes in the vice?
