My kids are always in the shop and finally getting interested in woodworking. For Christmas, I got them some real tools, though carefully chosen ones:
—Buck Bros backsaw
—Eggbeater drill and bits
—Irwin 6” quick clamps
—Elmers Wood Glue
—Some nails and screws
And then I built them this bench. It’s based on a design at FWW, but I made some modifications. It has a real vise (a groz) and dog holes all the way down the top. I will be adding a shelf underneath the worksurface to hold up benchdogs (easier for them than friction) and to hold some of their tools.
Works great for them. Has me tempted to build a version for myself—a “super simple” workbench.
