I have created a new shop to give tutorials called Aula Flamingo. I needed a new workbench and I have been studing along the years a graceful and versatile design. Finally I have been able to build my last and best toolwork to teach confortably and safely.
This workbench is custom-made to any needs and taste of customers.
This workbench is made of sapeli, ash and beech. Anyway you can order to me this workbench to be made from any other wood species available. Finished with 3 layers of boiled linseed oil mixed with mineral spirits.
The hardware is from Lee Valley but you can order any other to personalize your own workbench.
You can see a vid at my channel of this workbench. Please contact us for details and prices.
Joinery is handmade as everything at my work / shop.
The front vise rail is attached with fox wedged tenons
Planning stop is two degrees toward to improve when pushing againts
A smart crouchet assists when planning long boards.
I have employed the classic tenon/tongue with holes and a burnisher to stop the loer side of the jaws, I recommend to order crisscros from Benchcrafted for the sliding front vise Flamingo instead.
The top is made of 4 inches laminated steamed beech to give consintent weight and a dead flat surface.
Rear legs are ten degrees sloped to minimize vibration.
The vises´jaws are leather protected
As usual Flamingo crafts are sign-stamped
Hope you liked it !
