a little addition to my assembly table,i saw something similar to this on a you tube video of a guy in Denmark,i think his company was called bench works,he specialized in high end watch makers benches.he had these racks on the benches in his shop,i loved the idea and it was fairly simple to make.made out of leftover poplar.i used rockler t track and rockler self adjusting clamps.4’wide and 2’ from the bottom peg hole to the top of bench but you could make anyway you want.this is great for when you need to work on the side of a large board.

Looks neato,
Something I noticed, are the clamps auto adjusting air operated? or is the bench one of the latest hovercraft models?

However more importantly where are the construction details, or the “How did you make them” info please

oh here we go again mr castle,that keen eye of yours,both whimsical and institutional.first the clamps are not air
operated,they just self adjust to the thickness they are clamping.as far as the bench refer to my projects,i guess you missed it!.and lastly I don’t do construction details,fancy videos or tutorials of any shape or form!.now if you look at what I did its really pretty simple.so that’s all ya get buddy.i love ya for who you are-peace out my aussie brother.

Humm do you mean the Ultimate Assembly table “with outlet on each corner with an air outlet on each end”.. and not just one but three bottles of Titebond glue proudly on display as well!!

All very well done too I might add.

Not without noticing a beaut looking Ute in the drive way too…but I couldnt see what brand and model it was…?

I am off now to check out Mr nakashima work as if its anthing like Sam’s its worth a look.

BTW something I am working on.

Sorry about that, ...its still in the raw so possibly shy!

Its what I call my Medium Maloof Chair (MMC) specifically designed for adults to sit on when the kids are using my Maloof kids chairs.
No screws, No arms, No 3D Joints, no 5 deg router bits just shop stock ones. Its basicly a Low Back with no arms and smaller
Not something an adult could sit at a table with but when interacting with kids its down on the same level as them.
A custom request from the family after I made the smaller ones.

Its one of four 100mm overall bigger than the kids chairs.
