This is the bench that I posted a while back. I’ve had numerous request to do some traveling demonstrations, so I made this knock down stand to set the bench on. Its made out of white oak as well with waterlox as the finish. It breaks down into three pieces and can be easily loaded to hit the road.

Thanks for having a look!

Great looking bench, again another project I would be afraid of damaging and would not use for its intended purpose.

That’s what we would call a first-class sawhorse! You really know how to turn practical into beautiful! Very fitting for your incredibly gorgeous workbench.
