I needed a bench that could travel, but would still be useful every day in my shop. Thank God I read a blog post that spoke about a bench built by a man named Tim Williams and his version of a joinery bench. Mine is not quite as sexy as his, but it will get the job done and isn’t that all you can really ask from a bench anyhow?
built this bench over the last two months, using 95% hand tools, from ripping the 2×8 in half for the laminated bench top with a hand filed rip saw to planing the top flat with a jack and smoothing plane. I have learned so much doing this.
