Cabinet Makers Bench

Good benches are indispensable for handwork; a softwood bench put together quickly from small section wood is not suitable. Cabinet-benches should be of hardwood, preferably beech, sturdy and perfectly level, because the eye will always attempt to compensate for any slope, and thus vertical cuts are likely to be out of square if the bench-top is sloping. A quick-

action woodworker's vice/vise should be fitted and an end vice also. Figure 37 gives the constructional details of a standard bench with 21/2 in (63.5 mm) beech top and underframing, which should not be less than 6 ft (1.828 m) long.

Instead of buying a bench, many may prefer to make their own, and all the necessary metal fittings are obtainable from specialist tool firms.
