A Small Shop Solution
Mar 9th, 2014 at 12:15am
 
Hi:
I wasn't going to post this here since it is only peripherally related to wood turning, but from the responses I have been getting since I put it up on Youtube there are some other turners that might find it useful.  I had to give up my cabinetmaker's style workbench when I bought my new lathe since I didn't have the space for both.  There have been quite a few times since then that I really wished I had a work surface that I could clamp things to in order to work on them with hand tools.  This is my solution.

Great idea, Bob, and an excellent video, as usual.

At 6:30 of the video, when you are removing the bench top, there are what look like the heads of two bolts showing on the back edge of the bench top. What are they?

Hi, Grant:
There are two 3/8" allthread rods running through the benchtop laminations.  They were a great help when gluing everything together.  I glued up the top in three sections that were each narrow enough to run through my thickness planer and then glued the three sections together.

Take care
Bob
