I am planning on building a bench similar to the one Paul recommends however I have a few questions. The first is how one would go about edge planing long boards. With the face vise not butting against the front of the bench how do you support the far end of the board. Secondly does the tool tray impede the use of holdfasts? If anyone uses a Paul style bench and has these answers I would be glad to hear them.
