Versatile Add-On Bench

This pint-size bench is big on options to give you a solid grip on all kinds of workpieces — and raise them to a more comfortable level.

Sometimes you want to raise the work up to a more comfortable height. This benchtop add-on workbench is the perfect answer. It features solid construction and offers a range of options to secure workpieces. The two-piece top has a slot and wide overhangs on the sides to give plenty of places to clamp a piece flat on the worksurface. Another slot on the front of the bench creates access to clamp a part to work on its edges or ends. Two hardwood vise jaws spread out the clamping pressure. There are only a handful of parts to this bench, and the construction is straightforward. So you’ll be putting it to work in no time. Your back will thank you!
