Mobile Woodworking Workbench With Well

WOODWORKING MOBILE BENCH WITH WELL RECORD VICES

1.8 x .75 x .9m high. The woodworking dog holes that criss-cross on the mobile workbench top can be used by both vices. There is a standard rail at the rear to suit smaller clamps than would be needed to hold down the same objects over the woodworking front.

The mobility is a useful feature for someone who lives or works in a small premises without a workshop. The bench can be rolled out of storage for working outside – perhaps in a courtyard. A view from the far end is shown below.

 QUICK ACTION VICES ON WOODWORKING MOBILE WORKBENCH

The well in the woodworking workbench is handy to store tools for reuse on a job. All four edges of the well overhang and can be used for clamping to the inner bench top. A well cover is included for occasions where a full flat top is required. The box under the bench top is wider and longer than the opening to maximise handy on board storage.

The bench is fitted with two Irwin Record 52ED quick action woodworking vices and four total locking castors.

Laminated Top Woodworking Workbench

LAMINATED SOLID JARRAH TOP WITH DOG HOLING

1.8 x .6 x .9m high. This woodworking workbench has a laminated, prime jarrah top and two Irwin Record 53ED quick action woodworking vices fitted. The lower shelf is set at a height from the floor for vacuum cleaner access and for some storage.

 CLOSE UP OF DOG HOLED JARRAH TOP

A close up of the laminated top. Tops up to 3m long, 30mm thick can be sold separately in two grades. Prime grade as above is almost mark free. Feature grade exhibits the evidence of nature at work. A close up of a feature grade laminated jarrah top can be seen in the Trades & Crafts page.

Engagement Present Workbench

ENGAGEMENT GIFT AND RETIREMENT PRESENT WORKBENCH

2.4 x .6 x 1m high. This is one of a number of workbenches ordered as a return engagement present. The lady selected a beautiful engagement ring, the gentleman selected a beautiful workbench. Both gifts will endure the tests of time.

The lucky man is a keen woodworker as well as a car and motorbike restorer and collector. The bench is also equipped with a swivelling workshop vice on the right hand end (not shown) for engineering use.

A workbench is a thoughtful, practical present for engagement, retirement or birthday occasions. If you order for a special occasion please do so as early as possible so that your deadline can be met. Photo presentations of a coming gift can be used at a ceremony, but a present with “presence” provides a lasting memory for all in attendance.

 CLOSE UP OF RETIREMENT PRESENT WORKBENCH

Every twenty to thirty years the top can be sanded back one millimetre or so and then re-oiled to look like new again. A good time to do the restoration is when the bench is passed down from one generation to the next.

 ENGAGEMENT AND RETIREMENT PRESENT WORKBENCH PLAQUE

An engraved plaque has been attached to the backing strip to celebrate the occasion.

Hi,

I’m just looking at buying my husband a workbench for Christmas.

Firstly is there any chance of getting this by Christmas?

Secondly, he would use it mainly for working on his mountain bike so which vice would you recommend as a general purpose one?

Thanks, Skye

PS: He bought me a beautiful heavy duty workbench (for woodworking) from you guys instead of an engagement ring and I just wanted to let you know that it’s great!

Dual Purpose Mobile Workbench

DUAL PURPOSE MOBILE WORKBENCH WITH LOCKING STORAGE

If you are interested in this bench or one like it please contact us requesting more images to choose from

2.1 X .75 x .9m high. A mobile workbench with a removable 1.5mm galvanised steel cover that stores on the side of the bench when not in use. The vice is an Irwin Record V175 plain screw woodworking vice. The V175 is perfectly adequate for home handymen. It has a usable depth of 100mm or so inside the opened jaw with jarrah cheek attached. Although it is a plain screw vice it has quite a fast action due to its twin acme thread screw.

Small Storage Workbench

SMALL STORAGE BENCH WITH DRAWERS AND CABINET

If you are interested in this bench or one like it please contact us requesting more images to choose from

1.5 x .75 x .9m high. This small storage workbench has solid jarrah fascia drawers and a jarrah veneer door, edged with solid jarrah. The jarrah selected for the top is mixed, alternating dark to light from front to rear.

When timber is turned into high quality veneer its useful life is measured in decades. Jarrah veneer is finished approximately .6mm thick over a substrate of particleboard or mdf.

A dining table topped with a thin veneer can be carefully sanded back at least twice before the substrate is bared, allowing a usable life of around 30 years. The top can then be turned over and used again. Just one mature tree can produce quality veneer that is a source of immense pleasure, appreciated daily by hundreds of admirers.

Laminated Workbench Legs
