Take a look at my unique and versatile bench ( I designed and built it last April and really like it. So far I have been 100% satisfied with it and just a couple of weeks ago, I discovered a new use for it while cutting dados. The bamboo flooring has proven to be extremely durable and perfect for glue ups. I used to slip wax paper under my glue ups and had minor problems with the paper sticking to my projects. I no longer use the wax paper because nothing sticks to the flooring.

Honestly, I always dreamed about those nice fancy European benches but now I’m glad I never had the cash to put one together. My bench does everything those fancy benches do plus more. Those benches do a great job pinching boards between the vise and dogs, but they are no match for my bench top saw horses or the ability I have of securing my work to overhang the bench surface. I have short fences for planing boards and I have tall fences for use as back stops. And I can now attach my dovetail jig or any other bench top tool in less then a minute. My bench is perfect for my needs and budget.
