Traditional workbenches are great! Centuries of woodworkers have used the work-holding features of their benches to dovetail drawers and casework. And many a sore back has been the result.
The problem is planing and project assembly tasks are best done at a low bench. But cutting joinery such as dovetails is more comfortable at a higher bench. Most shops don’t have multiple benches for multiple uses, so we bend down for our dovetailing.
This workstation seeks to solve that problem! When placed on a standard bench top it raises your work up so you can stand erect and work more comfortably. It also includes work-holding clamps so it may be used on any work-surface, no vice required. And other clever features, such as a drawer to hold all your dovetailing tools and a replaceable chopping surface make it very versatile.
