Retirement gift – Mechanic

The customer was looking to buy himself a retirement gift that he could use once he had more time on his hands. The client is an amateur mechanic and has a couple of very nice vintage motorbikes the need constant work to keep roadworthy. He came to us to find solid retirement workbench for his mechanical adventures and together we came up with this design.

Dave was looking for a bench that would fit into the space in his garage that would be heavy enough to remain stable and also have mobile castors for easy movability. The result is a solid Jarrah bench with a thicker top and square legs.

I really like the look of this bench without an apron and feel that woodworkers would love the clamping space available around the entire bench. It would be a simple matter to install a woodworking vice under the top and still keep the smooth lines.

Kitchen bench extender on castors

The customer runs a cooking school and was looking for a way to extend their kitchen bench and have it on castors to give them flexibility when not teaching.

The solution we came up with fits on the end of the bench, where the grain of the timber flows the leg panels and top. Being 50mm thick, the bench is solid while still being easy to move on the locking castors.

The photo shows the shipping panel attached to secure the legs during transportation.
