Oregon Woodworker: The Nicholson Bench Build

Workbenches have been a hot topic as of late with woodworkers. And, one of the most popular bench designs that has been built is the Roubo bench, with it’s thick top, through mortised legs and stout dimensions.

But, another design that should be considered is the English style – or Nicholson – bench. It’s a piece of engineering genius, giving plenty of clamping and working area.

One of the best – and best documented – resources was put together by Andy Margeson. He took the time to show us how he designed, built and photographed the bench from start to finish. And, boy, what a finish!

  1. Just wanted to give a shout out to Tom and the link of the week posts! It’s by far my favorite post. I love getting connected with other woodworkers that are willing to share info via the web. Thanks!!
