I scored an old European style jointers workbench a few years ago from an estate sale, but finally had the time and tools to flatten and refinish the old girl. Since I only paid a few hundred bucks for it I didn’t mind that it wasn’t flat and was stained. My old Stanley hand planes sporting new Hock blades finally enabled me to get the work done, but I will tell you that heaving a 10 pound No. 7 Stanley jointer hand plane will give you a workout!
It took about 3 months of on and off work, but I got it flat, square, and smooth, then drilled a few more dog holes for my corner vise to hold down larger objects.
Ready for work!
