Wow, you're really not going to use that are you?! Beautiful.

What is the hole in the leg for?
Les Hastings [07/28/2014]
The holes in the legs are to clamp it down to your bench.

That is a really nice portable workbench. I would use it as a coffee table because I wouldn't want to scratch it.

First time I've ever been inclined to comment on work posted here.

Great design. beautiful.
Nancy Billings [07/30/2014]
WOW!! I would like to build one of these (not as ornate). Do you sell plans? If not, would you be upset if I used your design from your photos to build my own?
Les Gastings [07/30/2014]
I never made any plans to build the bench. Feel free to copy it if want. If you have any questions about building it just give me a holler and I'll try to answer any questions you might have.

Nice work,Les. I'd be afraid to use it with what and where I'd need a 'field bench'. I'd be afraid to blow a hole into it, or scrape it up. But I might spoof the 'k-d' detail of the legs; that'll fly...;)
That sure looks nice, Les. If you get any side to side racking while planing, for example, then canting the "a" frame legs would make it a bit sturdier.

Mark, Thanks for your comment! The bench really wasn't made to do hand planning, its a little high for that. I made it for doing inlay work on federal furniture pieces mostly. But I have found very useful for many things. As far as the racking goes, its really not bad. Hasn't been a problem with anything that I have used it thus far.
Amazing bench! Wanna have the same! You're a great master I bet. Wish you all the best and hope to see your another marvelous stuff!

It´s possible send a copy of the plans to build the bench?
les hastings [05/23/2016]
I don't have any plans draw up on this project. I guess I should as many request as I get. I'll try and do that sometime. Thankd
Amazing, I can see a bevelled edge in the dog holes on your workbench top, please, could you share with us which technique did you use to achieve those nice circular bevelled edges? thanks
