A newcomer to the wood thing, I spent hours playing with design ideas for this rack for my son and none of them were any good. Then I realized I’d already made two, just on a smaller scale. The design is from a Krenov saw horse, or what Tom Fidgen called “Shop Bents”. I just blew it up a few sizes, and added a small work table. Made from Benkerai.

Hey that looks great!
I wouldn’t let my son touch such a nice bench, he would destroy it
Love the wood, it is what we think is exotic and you get to use everyday:)

LOL, my problem is actually getting him to USE it before someone breaks his neck!

Yes, Benkerai is standard construction material – hard to think of it as exotic! Funny thing is, I grew up in North America, so as part of my learning curve I have to learn all the “new” woods here, too.

Great concept for the skateboard bench. I love it and wish I had something like that in the 80’s when I was skateboarding.

Thanks (I think). I’ll need to get my son to translate. ;)
