Beautiful. Could you share the manufacturer of the vice? Thanks, Jon1 July 2016 at 9:30 pm #138210Paul DallenderParticipant
Misha we have a saying here in the UK that good things come in small packages and that bench looks very very good and the wall clock doesn’t look too shabby either.
How long have you been woodworking? I’ve literally just begun and my workbench was my first project. I’m working towards finer projects like the wall clock, but mine will have a door with leaded glass. If it turns out half as nice as yours I’ll be very pleased.

Nice job, I plane on building a small bench similar to that one for my Grandchildren to use when they come over here. They like hanging out with Papa when I am in the shop, and fortunately they live next door.

Excuse my not answering promptly.
To Jon. The vise manufacturer is ZUBR
To Paul Dallender. I have been woodworking from time to time right in my flat for about two years, and now I am very lucky as I’ve got a place for a shop. And though it is very tiny I am planning to make a lot of projects there. A big workbench is already done. I will poste a photo shortly. Yes, a big one is a great difference, it is like a rock. At the moment I am working on a Table (Mr. Sellers’ current video course).

Really awsome.. there’s no stopping you, is there 🙂
I like the small bench you made also – I’ll be making something similar, just a wee bit longer. I just don’t have the space for anything bigger..

Nice work Misha. Does it have the same stability as the large one? I’m planning on making a couple of workbenches for job sites. Thanks in advance.

Very nice! I like the mini version.

The short workbench is of course not wobbly but stability and movability depends on size. I’ve made three benches of different sizes so far. 1×0.6 1,5×0.6 and 1×2 meter. The most stable is the biggest one (1×2 meter). For planing I find that the longer one is better and for sawing is the wider; so 1×2 m. suits most of the tasks.

My big one is 8′ long by 38″ wide. On the side I’ve a cabinet with three drawers and I’m planning on making more cabinetry on the front as well.
Couple of things I’ve added to the bench–
–I’ve placed retractable casters/wheels because I like to have it movable.
–I’ve notched the top for a butt hinge, two screws are holding the hinge down to the bench top and the middle screw is spring loaded–I use it for thin stock planing.24 September 2016 at 9:49 pm #140837
Джейк, твоя упомянуть петли очень интересные. Не могли бы вы разместить фото, пожалуйста.
Misha24 September 2016 at 9:49 pm #140838
Jake, your mentioning the hinge is very interesting. Could you place a picture of it please.
Misha24 September 2016 at 10:53 pm #140839
