Hello, this is my first post here. I have never done woodworking before, but I have a strong desire to learn. I have watched a lot of the wonderful videos made by
Paul and can’t wait to start. Unfortunately though, I don’t have a strong enough table and I don’t feel confident enough to be able to build my own bench following Paul’s tutorial, yet.
I have done some research and have narrowed it down to two German benches that seem quite strong, well built, and have a well (a feature that I find very useful). Unfortunately neither of them has an apron, so I am slightly concerned about long term stability, but hopefully they will last long enough for me to get good enough to decide to build my own 🙂
Here are the two benches I have selected:
Ulmia #2: http://www.ulmia.de/English/Ulmia_Schreinerhobelbank_Modell-2-4.htm#Schreinerhobelbank%20Modell%202
I was wondering if any of you uses either one of these benches, or if you have any recommendations. If you haven’t self-built your own bench, which bench do you use and why did you select it?
I have searched through the forum and couldn’t find a similar question asked, at least not in the first 20+ pages of the forum, so I hope the question is ok to be asked.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
