OMG, do y'all remember John White's "Newfangled Workbench?" It's such a marvel, IMHO. Did anyone here build it? John was a great resource when he was at FWW, helped me out on a couple of sticky problems.

Pardon the reminiscing, am recovering from several days of grueling work outside, just taking it easy tonight.

Hey Jamie,

Yeah, I remember it, but I wasn't that impressed by it. I guess I much more of an oldfangled kinda guy. :wink:

Here's the workbench that I hope to build someday, as a present to my even older self, the Moravian workbench.

Cheers,
Tom

Holy Smokes, Eric, that one looks like it would do everything! I'd have to build a new garage to hold it though. :shock:
