We have a very unique workbench of the month for April 2015 which comes to us from David F. from Wichita, Kansas. David built a 1/3 scale model workbench for a local historical museum in Wichita that was having a Christmas toy show. This workbench features both a functional face and tail vise that has wooden vise screws and internal garters. This workbench is simply amazing. As you look at the extended grouping of pictures, don’t forget to look at the can of Coke Zero in the foreground of several of the pictures which will help to put the workbench scale into perspective for you. Once again, simply amazing!
Dear Lake Erie Toolworks,
I built this 1/3 scale model for our local Historical Museum’s Christmas toy show. I modeled the bench after a late 1800s bench that I have in my shop. The screws are held in place with internal garters. The screws are made from lignum vitae that I had in the shop (super nice to machine). The bench is maple and with walnut for the base stretchers and tail vise parts. This was a great project will be enjoyed for a long time to come.
Thanks. David F.
