The customer was looking for a very large bench with a light colour timber for the work surface and lots of storage. This bench is 2.4m long and 900mm deep with 6 square legs. After construction, we realised the middle legs were entirely unnecessary, as the thickness and rigidity of the top meant the middle legs did nothing.

The storage was a great addition and the pattern makers vice was my first like that.

The Tuart top was 50mm thick laminated boards and it took some work finding boards that long and thick to meet our needs. Our thanks to Derek Doak, the Timber Bloke in Cockburn.
