Last week I attended a week long handsawing class, taught by Christopher Schwarz at the Northwest Woodworking Studio in Portland, OR. It was one of the best weeks I've spent woodworking. One of the projects we walked away with was a Sawbench.

A $6 saw bench by Chris Schwarz. Gonna build me a pair of these.

I have that same vice.  Mini Workbench.

This Mini Work bench was a project i had been working on for my job the past few days. The company wanted a show piece for their show room of a traditional style woodworking bench. The bench is made with all wooden joinery using dowel stock as pin.


I made this sawbench based upon a design I saw on Lumberjocks. It's made of poplar left over from my workbench build.
