A different workbench

I saw this table being built on one of the woodworker shows and thought it would be a great addition to my shop. I suffer from arthritis so having the ability to raise and lower the table is very helpful. It’s also mobile with the help of 4 heavy duty casters and the table is super strong when stationary. Recently Kreg tracks and an antique vise and still have to install sliding doors.

Nice bench Tommy. I’m not a traditionalist when it comes to benches, and I like that one. Please be sure to post some photos of it in use.

Well executed. I like bench dogs in parallel and thicker tops, but I’m with you on the benefits of mobility and being able to adjust height.

Interested in how the raising and lowering mechanism works.

Pretty simple process actually. It clicks into position as you lift and to lower you just step on the little foot piece.

That’s one cool table Tommy! I have lower back problems. Anything to make it easy on us is a good thing!

TommyD, I went down to Trenton and purchased the bench from Norden 4 or 5 yrs ago. It has been great the little I have used it. I bought the oak side boards too. Just added a 3/4” MDF framed top. I use it for assembly and finishing in my basement.

Norden is a nice guy and very helpful if you have questions.

I love it for its adjustability and surprising strength for a table top of on 1 1/2 inches. Installing holes for bench dogs so will see how that goes.
