Walk-around Workbench

Walkaround workbench annotated
My "Walk-around" workbench is designed for woodworkers with limited space.

The elements are traditional, they are just assembled in a new way to allow woodworkers with a narrow shop to have the advantages of a continental bench with a shoulder vise and have it in the middle of the shop floor, so they can access all sides of a workpiece.

Details of this design first appeared on the excellent workbenchdesign.net website:

Lee Valley Tools of Ottawa has now published my article on the bench:

I have uploaded two 3D models to Google SketchUp and you can find them at:

If you have any questions about the design, feel free to contact me.
