Made from softwoods. Top is 4" x 24" x 8'.
Thanks for all the effort in putting up my tools, Kbalch!
I liked & followed this site on Facebook & Twitter. I also added some referral links from my blog.

Thanks for putting up my bits & pieces, Ken!
Would it be possible to include my tools under "Homemade tools built by knoba on https://knoba.wordpress.com" rather than "Homemade tools built by knoba on homemadetools.net", please?
Again, many thanks!
Thanks for the compliments DIYer!
I used softwood because it was; cheaper, easier to source, work & fabricate, it also has a better shock loading (deadening) capability than a hardwood version.
I do have a superb Sjoberg hardwood bench that I use for joinery, but I didn't make it...
Absolutely. Now that you've added direct links to each page, I'll get those entries edited today. We're always glad to link back to a builder's own site!Would it be possible to include my tools under "Homemade tools built by knoba on https://knoba.wordpress.com" rather than "Homemade tools built by knoba on homemadetools.net", please?
Thanks DIYer! Nice compliment. That's absolutely made my day!
Without a shadow of a doubt, time is my most valued asset. The wood on that workbench (3" Beech) would have taken me 3 years to season, by air drying, (that's if it doesn't; split, warp, crook or bow).
I only make tools; when I can make them cheaper, or better, than retail products, that, or if they don't exist at all, or if I can learn something from the process.
I'm not precious about what I've made, in fact the end product is always a bit of low for me. What I love, is getting there, the journey, that rocks!
Do you have a site/blog, or thoughts about doing one?
Time, yes, seems to compress as one grows old. My skill set is limited to fixing things, and modifying tools to suit the task at hand. I've thought of maintaining a site, but after starting a couple, I find that it's almost like work - and I'd rather go places on a road trip, or my bicycle, or check out a new eatery with my wife.
You're right, DIYer, life is for living. Enjoying what we have & love should be a priority. All power to you my friend!
