Adjustable Benchtop Riser

Here’s the adjustable riser I designed and built to level boards to match all tools and/or situations at the workbench.

It’s all made from scrap and only requires a carriage bolt and a wing-nut. As shown, swap tapered parts to ensure all height setups. And it’s fast and easy to stow away.

For more photos and construction details, please visit this page of my blog.

I hope you like it and it can inspire you. Thanks for looking.

Best,
Serge

Awesome idea!

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.
