he could call it a 900 lb. bench
It's well done but...
It's not my style and the video didn't show the advantages of the
vertical motion. Fixing scratches on a workbench top isn't something
I'd ever do. But it looks good. I must serve some specific purposes.
Spend some time on a work bench and you know the advantages of vertical
You raise it to work/assemble at eye level or lower for the same reason.
and being able to tweak the height sure saves the back when applying
stains or sanding.
I use a 900 lb mobile work bench at the farm.... the truck bed and tail gait. Does that count?
Robert commented (another thread) that things have been slow, here. In the past month, the only thing I've done (this past weekend) was install a shelf above the kitchen sink, for misc items, at the camp.... prep work done on the tail gait.
There's nothing I hate more than piratical workbench. :)
More to the point, you mention the benefits of a variable-height bench.
Do you actually have something like that? Or perhaps just work surfaces
of different heights?
I knewo!!!! ;~) I wonder if piratical is even a word. LOL
I have work surfaces of different heights. The last that I have
acquired was a Festool FMT, it stands 2~3 taller than any of my other
work surfaces. I much prefer it for normal work but it is too tall for
assembly purposes. I have a 2x4 interlocking grid that I assemble on
top of 2 saw horses plus 2 halves of a sheet of plywood setting on
that. This is great for adding cabinet backs, doors, drawers to a
cabinet and general parts storage during a job, but too low for sanding
