IMG_7278.JPGmy shop's traveling pegboard13 viewsThis storage center has been in my shops in three houses, and supports easily several times its own weight. It is suspended from the floor joists above on two aircraft-style multi strand cables, and should one of those slip, the whole board would only drop less than 1/4" inc onto the benchtop below.

Items on this board include braces, drawshave, perfect handle and cabinetmakers screwdrivers, marking gauges, hand drills, gimlets, try squares, steel rules, metal shears, drill & screw sizing gauges

IMG_0715.JPGMoxon vise 42 viewsThis is build to drop into the dog holes along the east edge of the bench. With a 20" opening between the screws and a 6" capacity, it can handle most all drawer boxes I would likely work on as well as any dovetail joints.Charlie Driggs

IMG_5122.JPGsouth end of workbench40 viewsthe upper end of the two leg vises are visible in this shot. The advantage of being able to work from any side of this bench is particularly usable when making up panels for furniture, as being done in this shot.Charlie Driggs

IMG_6685.JPGdetail of the older leg vise screw mount38 viewsThis may look a bit rough to some, but it is definitely a cleaner installation than the way it was mounted on my grandfather's 80, 90 or more years main bench. This one works quite wel. With two leg vises on the south end mounted 'in plane', it is quite easy to hold short sections (3-5 ft) of lumber for sawing to a line, although the height isn't ideal. Also very useful for holding items when needing to run round tenons with one of the hollow augers.Charlie Driggs

IMG_0799.JPGhold down storage along the west side of the bench41 viewsThe stretchers were a major stiffener of this bench, as until these were added it would rack a bit when planing large boards. Adding them created storage for items otherwise awkward to fit close at hand.Charlie Driggs

IMG_20150822_174929.jpg2015 Galoot BBQ 296 viewsmy small workbench, so much better than a Workmate(tm).
The thing on the left if the shaving pony we were using to rough our spoon blanks with a small drawknife. I had a couple of dog tie-out stakes and a ratchet strap cinching the bench solidly to the ground.
