Here is a nice authentic workbench that I’ve spotted in the open air museum this weekend. It is from the year 1928.

Great collection of hand tools, isn’t it?

Enjoy ;)

Great bench. Like the tray underneath. I have some of those wrenches hanging on the wall in my old-tool-collection.

I thought this was going to be your inspiration for a Sketchup entry! :)

that is very similar to the tool benches that i saw up in toronto’s ontario college of art and design (ocad) when i visited the school where ted hunter teaches. they were still in use and very much loved! i really like the trough for the tools (tool well?) and vowed to find myself one of these one day.
