Gonna Need a Bigger Shop!

Postby Dave R » Sat Mar 21, 2020 6:27 pm

While poking through some folders on my computer this morning I decided to put the work benches I've modeled into a single file. I quit adding them after these. All of these were done for plans for Fine Woodworking Magazine.

Pretty impressive when they're all in one place, Dave!

Curious to know if you built one or more of them in real life?

Thank you sir.

I haven't built any of those in real life. When I would get one of these to do I would think, "That's a nice bench. Maybe I should build this for my shop." Then I'd get the next one and decide I like it better and, well, one thing leads to another and I never built any of them.

Hi Dave - in Bad Homburg, which is a beautiful smaller city next to Frankfurt, you will find a delicious restaurant "Schreinerei Pfeiffer (Carpentry Pfeiffer)". You will be placed there at ancient woodworking benches, all of which are very similar to your equally delicious work shown above :D
if you ever get here, this will be the place where we will eat wonderful Schnitzel :D

..yes, every now and again because it is a nice sunday afternoon excursion distance :D and otherwise I wouldn't have come up with this proposal :)
btw - 20 minutes north of Bad Homburg is the Saalburg, an ancient roman fort, the place where the first 20 minutes of the Gladiator movie could have taken place in real life...

Wow! I'm watching a series about Julius Caesar right now. Did he get up there?

no, not the famous Gaius Julius Caesar himself who was about 100 years before Christ. This place was first clearly developed in our new time calculation after Christ´s birth - starting something from the years about 50 to about 300. In the movie it was Marcus Aurelius but I´m not sure now. Every time I watched this film I wondered how well they hit the mood of autumnally cold Central European forests...
This was certainly not the most beautiful place for a roman legionnaire - at this time at the end of the world with barbarian Germanic tribes (like me! ;-)) on the other side of the Limes...https://www.google.de/maps/place/R%C3%B ... 5714?hl=de

in the museum restaurant they prepare the meals the way the ancient romans did, which is cool - but to be onest, which has little to do with italian cuisine today ;) ;)

Still an interesting place.

I've been watching a number of historical and archaeological programs lately and I'm disappointed that the Romans never made it this far. I'd love to find some Romans pot or a coin or something. :D

... which is something that every farmer there found far more than once ;) these Romans also fascinate me extraordinarily as they are nevertheless in their effect everywhere noticeable here until today.

to lead back to your post here :D - however - whenever you are here we will first visit the Saalburg and then eat Schnitzels at the great grandfathers of your great workbenches above !!! :-)

GREAT BENCHES! Curious about readers who might have built them. You'd have to get more apprentices to work at them too.

The Romans got far enough, I think LOL. Check out the Podcasts-- History of Rome. Or Dan Carlin's Celtic Holocaust. JGC was pretty busy, and he had time to go get Cleopatra pregnant down in Egypt as well. Built fleets on campaign to go to Britain twice, before there was much point in it! And he wrote a world classic about it all. No Slacker

(I like the podcasts best because of the detail and speed of delivery over the "marching sandals" TV specials. Also going through History of Byzantium and History of Egypt, highly recommend)

Unfortunately I don't know how many of these benches have been built. My guess is most were modified in some way or other.

I live in a sort of vacuum without any TV and only recently came across the program series called Time Team which is interesting. Tony Robinson is a good presenter and so I've hunted up others of his programs.

That Roubo bench (top right, with Benchcrafted hardware) is gonna crush whatever it's sitting on.

I thought about that, David. It's John White's New-fangled bench on the bottom.

The Roubo will turn John White's bench into kindling for sure!
