In the coming week we’ll post the free SketchUp drawing for the knockdown Nicholson workbench I built earlier this month. But if you need an inexpensive and portable workbench,
this one is for sale for $400, cash and carry. Sorry, sold.
I built the bench to prove the design concept, and also we needed a fourth workbench for my coffin-building event this weekend.
I didn’t expect the knockdown bench to be this good – I thought I’d have to tinker with it before I was happy. But this thing is solid and ready to go. No apologies.
The bench is made from Southern yellow pine and weighs about 250 pounds. The top is 22” x 72” and the benchtop is 33” from the floor. The entire bench can be assembled and disassembled with a 9/16” ratchet in less than 10 minutes.
If you are interested in the bench, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first one to say “I’ll take it” and comes to pick it up gets it. Sorry, I cannot ship this bench.
