There are a lot of different styles of workbenches used for woodworking. None of them is perfect. Every design has its pros and cons. I tend to be more of the opinion that a workbench is a place to do work. In my eyes, a workbench doesn’t need to be an expensive alter for the hand tool gods, or a flashy showpiece that I’ll be afraid to scratch. So I designed and built this workbench to handle all of the hard work that I ask a workbench to do, but also so that I wouldn’t mind when it inevitably gets glue or stain on it, when it gets cut by a saw or chisel, or when it gets banged and dented by a dropped tool or project part. This workbench is designed to work. Nothing more.
