Cool workbench

I was wondering why the pegboard for the support dogs was so close to the vise and thinking that the owner must have only worked on small furniture.

But looking at it carefully, it looks like the pegboard can slide to the right. Is that correct? I've seen lots of old workbenches, but I've never seen that particular feature.

Here is a modern version of this bench. It's commonly known as a Roubo Style.

I would have thought that was pretty cool if I had seen it first. Now it just looks like a sissy bench.

I think the Stanley Power Planer has made all that old bench technology kind of redundant, no? The old workbench is a thing of beauty, but I wouldn't have much use for the new one.

I have old planes collecting dust on a shelf. Anyone interested? Send me a PM.

Yeah, it needs a beating with a length of chain to give it that distressed look. It also needs a couple of outlets mounted on it with a female pig tail for power tools.

Roy Underwood's fun to watch, but I'm not giving up my machines.[;)]
