To replace my old and rather simple pinewood workbench/assembly table i dicided to make a new one.
With a sturdy laminated beechwood worktop, 6 drawers for electric hand tools, an open space for easy reach of frequently used tools like carpenters square, cordless drills, Mafell sandingmachine and more.
In the worktop i inserted a adjustable stop. The two front post have T-track rails with support brackets mounted one. One for vertical- and one for horizontal clamping in the original English Woden vice.
The vice has new oversized plywood liners to protect the workpiece.
Industrial casters makes this heavy table easy to roll around in the shop and accessible from all sides.
