Adding our March 2011 Workbench of the Month from Kirk S. of Cullowhee, North Carolina to our Lake Erie Toolworks Blog for ease of access and historical awareness.
While you can do great work on saw horses and a hollow core door, I guarantee you will wish you had built or bought a good workbench once you own one. I’m glad I chose Lake Erie for my leg vise screw. It works great and looks great too. You can see more pictures of my bench at roubokirk.com.
