Fold away workbenches.
These workbenches are for sale - see below if interested.
In 2009 Terry custom built for our workshop a set of six fold away workbenches, specially designed to maximise workshop space when not in use. Ideal for workshops which are shared with other hobbies or the family car.
The workbench is mounted to the wall, and when not not required their legs fold against the wall and the top folds down. Protruding only 260mm from the wall.
They are 55mm thick in total, comprising 35mm water resistant chipboard base with 19mm West Australian Karri work surface and 65mm Victorian Ash trim. Thick and solid enough to mount a heavy duty woodworkers vice. They are incredibly solid and can take significant weight and a real pounding like a good workbench should be able to when required. Worktop dimensions: 1085mm x 635mm.
Included are tool boards which hang on the wall using a simple French cleat system. These tool boards feature two Victorian Ash tool holders which hold the tools via two rows of concealed magnets. There is no direct magnet to tool contact, only timber on tool to avoid tools being scratched by the mounting system. Additionally they feature a whiteboard for project notes. Back board dimensions: 1130mm x 1150mm.
Four of the six workbenches have a series of 19mm dog holes in the worktop. These dog hole work brilliantly with Festool MFT-SP surface clamps and Walko surface clamps, as well as lots of other workbench dogs and clamps.
All surfaces are finished in tung-oil for easy cleaning and refinishing. They are in excellent condition as they have only had two years of intermittent use and only need a light rub-over with fresh oil to bring them up like new again.
They are being retired and for sale (individually or as a set), but are only available for pick them up from our Williamstown (VIC) workshop.
Valued around the $1,000 mark, these workbenches are available at $480 each. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 769 258 if you are interested. Thanks.
Tools and clamps not included.
