A sturdy, dependable workbench belongs at the
center of every hardworking home workshop. This
heavy-duty, versatile model features a pair of
vises that provide a variety of ways to hold
workpieces. You’ll also like the knock-down
construction, allowing you to easily move the
bench. In addition, you can choose from two
tops—an indestructible laminated one, and a
simpler plywood version. Both will give you
years of solid service.

Space-Saving Work Center
A rock-solid workbench and plenty of storage
are essentials in any shop. Of course, both
require space, which is especially tough to
find in a shop that shares the garage with
cars or has to fit in a confined basement
room. This work center offers a solution for
both situations, with a sturdy bench that
drops out of the way when no longer needed,
a big storage cabinet, and a handy
perforated-hardboard tool-hanging rack.
