This workbench is more primitive but carries the same angle brace leg vise mentioned in my previous blog post. Found in Farm Shop Work: Practical Manual Training, by George M. Brace and D. D. Mayne, 1915. http://thewoodknack.blogspot.co...

My love for woodworking began in high school which had a well equipped industrial arts classroom and offered courses in architectural and mechanical drawing, woodworking and woodturning. After taking every course offered, I tried to repeat them but wasn't allowed. I did apartment woodworking for a number of years, building simple shelves, DVD racks, and step stools. After buying a house with a separate shop building I finally purchased a table saw and began making furniture for the house. These days I make whatever suits my fancy from shop layout tools, boxes, turned projects and more.
