Good day to all of you.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, so I’m back. That is my latest project, it might give you a clue on what s coming in the future .
All made from beech wood, a first for me and a revelation, it works so fine so smooth and with another coat of danish oil it should be ready for work while keeping its natural look.
It stands 37 and a half in tall, so I can work in standing position , or sitting on a bar stool, regular size,top is 18×18 in. a small compartment for storage and a good vise for holding the work in progress, or using bench dogs, I think that I have covered all aspects, we will see,
I saw a picture similar to that on pinterest , I adapted for my use.
Feel free to comment I’m still learning, thanks for watching.

Oh Wow! Really impressive! Wood carving is where the really brave woodworkers go. I would love to see some works in progress on this bench. Really nice Andrek.

Nicely thought out. Should help you produce a good range of carvings.
Congrats on the DT3. ;)

Looks like a nice dedicated carving bench. I’m planning to build one (taller though, as I’m a tall galoot) and may steal a few of your features. Hope we get to see some of your carving soon!

I like this! It gives me ideas for what to do with a birch bench top I bought many years ago. I have a lathe and many accessories I bought many years ago and have sparsely used. I do however make wood carvings.

next addition…a carvers vise

This one appears to be a 1950-ish one that is on it’s way to the local maker-space here in Calgary

More flexible than the veritas carvers vice.

Thank you all for the nice words, now , I should be back with something decent in a near or no so near future. First I’ll be testing my workbench and my new toys and my new skills but that is debatable. Nice days to all , play safe in the shop, looking forward to see your projects.
