The time has come for a bench, a workbench.
After my B & D Workmate 2000 and MFTC, I want to make a carpenter’s bench.
Strongly robust (at least 2 quintals) and use all recovery material.

I like those clamps. I have two of the smaller ones. Looks like it’s going to be a very stout bench.

Nice design! Looks like you’ve got a good start on it too. Nice big hand jointer. One comment on the design:
I can’t recall what the name of sliding deal is that holds the holdfasts… but you may want to consider that with having the drawers under the bench, you won’t be able to insert the holdfasts into it. They would hit the drawer fronts. Or do you have a different plan?

The plane and a beast, really. I’m surprised by the power, and devours material without any resistance

Nice work Zoky. A build like this will be easier to find, in future, if you archive it on your home page, “Latest Blog Entry”. Fourm topics get lost after a few days.
