I have a ‘the-real-deal’ Ulmia carpenter’s bench that I want to sell.

I got it in Germany when the armed forces were closing casernes in the 90s, and all the furniture, household goods etc was being sold to German civilians, Dept Army families, anyone who’d want it. Anyhow, I got this bench, and shipped it back. I don’t know how to date it, but it is likely just barely post WW II, or whenever our occupying forces transitioned to “Staying There” forces, and much work had to be done to create housing for soldiers’ families and so forth.

I have only these two rather poor photos right now. I also have the (missing in photo) center drawer, several steel clamping dogs, a couple large block planes, and a couple hand saws.

I’m looking only for a fair price on this beautiful piece of work, not to gouge anyone, yet not get screwed in the process.

I am near Tacoma, WA- if shipping or pick-up challenges matter to you.

I am posting this item on several sites, so if it appeals to you, let me know ASAP.

I will get better photos, but here’s all I have right now:

A beauty and a beast at the same time. Made to last.

So did you sell it?
