Is there a photo of this bench somewhere? I am looking at building a bench and want to see if I should be trying to backorder GWW150.Ian Dalziel":3m6l69g1 said:I have had the luxury of both worlds, using a bought one and building one, I prefer my homebuilt one as it’s bigger and heavier all round (GWW issue 150) and better storage for me.
Given that you really DO need a bench to make one on....I decided that as I will probably not have room for two; so I Bought A PAIR OF TOUGHBUILT C700 SAWHORSES From FFX (£129), because they Fold up and stash away when not in use....I can use them with either an old door or a sheet of blockboard or strong plywood. - I have the option of how wide apart I have room for and they can be thrown into the back of a van for any site work that arises. _ They provide me with a height-adjustable 8' x 4' assembly surface which is strong enough to stand up on & it's easy to put away when it isn't needed. - What Ever type of bench you are intending to build, these sawhorses will be extremely useful, even after you have made the bench of your dreams.I was going to make a bench but didn't have a bench to make it on - so bought one. From Axminster, it was made in Germany, well constructed of beech and very heavy with good vices and dogs. Cost about £400 some three years ago and I'm well satisfied with it.
But now I have a bench I'll make my next one!
