    Hi everybody!
    This picture You find very amusement, but this is preparation for real workbench that I’m going to do in future, soon as I have enough money for right stuff. This was just start and I want to find out am I capable of doing right workbench. I use Stanley plane-SB 4, Metabo drill machine, old old jigsaw AEG ste380a, and some old chisels I have. For vice I used old jack. Although I am cold person (mechanical technician), I like to work with wood, especially since I moved from my home town to a countryside. I must say I also restore and recycle everything I can, but this project was so tempting I have to try to do it. If You have any comments or remarks don’t hesitate to post,
    Thanks in advance
    Sincerely Goran

    Why did you cut out the middle portion

    I didn’t cut it out, I have simply put one half of the middle on table because it is stretchable table and this “cut out” part I’m using for small things such as pencils, markers, etc, i tako bliže

    Poštovani Salko!

    Da li ste Vi izučeni stolar?! Po onome Vašemu projektu o radnom stolu bih rekao da ste stvarno sposoban stolar. Razlog pitanja – bez uvrede molim lijepo, je to što u mome kraju Žumberku nema stolara sa kojima bih se mogao posavjetovati oko nekih stvari. Pošto sam izučeni strojarski tehničar, nije mi strana priča o nacrtu (za svaku stvar napravim ili skicu ili nacrt u mjerilu), niti sam posao, ali uvijek postoje sitne tehnikalije, što bi rekao moj bivši kolega – za neke stvari treba u školu ići, koje me muče. Volim učiti, no kako rekoh nemam priliku se sa kim posavjetovti, pa je i sam put učenja sistem pokušaja i pogrešaka koje bih radije izbjegao.
    Nadam se da mi nećete zamjeriti ovako direktno pitanje.
    Zahvaljujem unaprijed
    S poštovanjem
    Goran

    An old door works just fine, particularly if its a solid core.

    Dear Sir!
    Thank You for understanding and pointing me I should run conversations in English. I beg all participants of this forum to excuse my unintentionally indecency to them.

    Best wishes

    Goran – I like your bench, but I REALLY like the re-purposing of the jack and wanted to ask a question.

    It looks like you made a hold-fast (or was it purchased?)
    If you made it or re-purposed something into a usable holdfast, I would really like you to talk about it.

    Dear Sir!
    Anything You want to know just ask. As great Albert Einstein said “Imagination is more important as knowledge”. That I have heard when I was nine or ten, and since then I have lived my live upon that rule. Many time this sentence- when I remember of course -facilitate my work I was doing.

    Greetings
    Goran 🙂
