The Bench You Love to Love
Here's a roundup of the plans, revised plans, blogs, and Knots entries about a remarkably versatile workbench
Nine years ago, when FWW’s then-shop manager, John White, combined pipe clamps and some dressed framing lumber, no one had any inkling that the”new-fangled workbench” he created would prove to be so enduringly popular.
Over the years, subscribers have clamored for more details about how the bench is made. They’ve made modifications and improvements. It’s been immortalized on video and captured in blogs.
Since so many subscribers want to know about the bench, we thought we’d make it easy to find the articles, videos, and other bits of content related to the newfangled bench. The links below probably aren’t an exhaustive list. There’s almost certainly a stray Knots posting somewhere or a letter to the editor that escaped our notice. (And if you’re the person who wrote that letter or Knots posting, please accept our apologies for leaving you off the list.)
