I just finished this carver’s bench today. It’s pretty simple having designed it myself from some pictures I was able to see on the web. It is made with southern yellow pine that I had remaining from a workbench that I built a few years back and can be seen in my projects section. There is a 11/2” oak dowel that is the width of the bench so the top is well-supported at any of several positions. Construction is simple and held together with glue and walnut Miller Dowels. (I do love these as they can exert some clamping force while the glue dries and if I lay out the holes carefully, they look nice in a contrasting color.)
I may add a lever that extends out the front to allow me to change angles without going around to the back of the bench, but next is a tool holder to hang from the side followed by some carving projects.
Thanks for looking,
