I have finished a short workbench. It is just under 1 meter long.

Wow that looks awesome. Perfect for joinery and small projects.
Great job on the build. You will love working on it.3 February 2016 at 1:47 pm #134477
Actually this one is for my friend’s son. It’s his birthday this very day. I once mentioned I can make a workbench when my friend told me that as his son was interested in woodworking and he would like to give him a real workbench as a birthday present. A few days later I was choosing wood at the local suppler. Time saw short. At times I was not sure I would complete the work in in time. I was to pass it yesterday. And it was only yesterday that I began to chop the recesses in the aprons. From very early morning (Someone poked me it the ribs…) till night I had to work without a break. At 11 p.m. the second jaw was cut and two hours later when my friend came to take the workbench away I took the final picture of it.
Thanks God. And thanks to Paul.

THat’s fantastic, Misha. Your friend’s kid will love it. I hope it really energizes his interest in woodworking.

I hope it does. I have a tenon saw and a modern Stanley #4 that I don’t use very often, so I gave them to him to start with. At least they are set and sharp.

That’s a great bench. An inspiration for the young woodworker.

Nice work , I also liked the vice .

This vise is quite good. I’ve been using the same kind of vise for nearly two years, and they never let me down. The quick release mechanism is very useful.

@misha2 Your mini bench has proved the inspiration for my mobile house repair bench.

The next is a downsized version of Paul’s wall clock. It is nearly finished, just can’t find appropiate clock mechanism.

That looks very nice also, Misha. I don’t know what country you are in, but in America, I’ve bought clock faces from Klockit.com. I’m sure there are many other clock face companies. Good luck.
