As some of you know one of my favorite things besides woodworking is leatherwork. I recently got a hand operated stitcher made by Tippmann. They sell a bench as well but I wanted some things different. I added a interchangeable work table so it can be used for tooling or other hobbies. Also put a lacing pony on the other end. It will swing down out of the way when not needed. So far with limited use it works well for me.

It is built from construction grade lumber and finished with English Chestnut stain and several coats of polyurethane.

As always thanks for looking and all questions and comments are welcome.

Looks great, Mark! How does the lacing pony swing out of the way? I like the 2X4 tractor seat stool, as well! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Joe and Candy. Those three legged stools sit well on uneven floors but at the same time they can buck you off if you lean to far. If I was to make more they would have a bigger footprint.

Nice idea Mark. I haven’t done any of my leather carving for a number of years now, but I can easily visualize a similar setup for some of the wood carving.
Looks like this will give you good service for years to come. I like it.
