Moravian Workbench

The DougFir tree came down last May during a Spring blizzard. It was too big for me to haul to the mill and would have been wasteful to buck up for firewood. So while browsing for project ideas I came across your site highlighting Will Myers reproduction of the Moravian Workbench and knew that I'd found the perfect match for the log.

I milled the log with a chainsaw mill to the dimensions from Will's PDF cut list and set it in the barn to dry. The tool chest was something I added to complement the gorgeous vise screw crafted by Nick at Lake Erie Toolworks.

I am an amateur and was happy to learn and apply a few new tricks along the way. It is one of the reasons why I love woodworking. The project took me a month to complete and am pleased with the final result.

How does Workbench Ideas work?

The Workbench Ideas feature is very straightforward.  If you've built a workbench and used a Lake Erie wooden vise in its construction, we would ask you to submit some pictures and a brief write up so that we can give other woodworkers great ideas to help them build their own workbench.  Also, we've expanded this feature to include demonstrated uses and applications for our Wooden Vise Kits as well as our Moxon Vises as well. So, if you've purchased any Wooden Vise Kit or Moxon Vise from us, and can share some pictures of the vise in use and a brief write up on how you are using the Vise, submit that to us as well.

In return for your workbench or Moxon Idea submission, we will send you a Lake Erie Toolworks logo T-Shirt as a thank you for sharing your idea with woodworkers around the world.

We trust that everyone will enjoy this feature and encourage you to submit your ideas when you have completed your workbench or Moxon Vise efforts.
