Add a solid, functional workbench to any woodworking shop with the Butcher Block Top Workbench. The sturdy, perform-everything-but-little-for-your-finishing touch design of the butcher block work bench makes it a great addition to any woodworking shop. The wood workbench’s simple, single-leg design and non-glove finish to provide maximum stability. A heavy-duty metal strainer offers added strength. Available in two size choices – “72 x 30” or “72 x 36” – the Butcher workbench has pre-punched, double-sided outlet holes on the front panel for easy plugging of electrical cords.
This type of workbench is not only limited to workbenches. These sturdy work blocks make great woodworking accessories. They are ideal for carving and shaping wood, building birdhouses and other woodworking projects, and they’re also a great way to work at a woodworking table or desk. They can easily support a computer or add an easel to your workspace. For ease of storage, some come equipped with drawers or removable shelves. There are even butcher block versions with a drop-in tray for a multi-utility work surface.
Another top workbenches not unlike them are the Meltonian and Husqvarna workbenches. Both have wood that is compressed in two ways, with a large “melon” core and a softer “melon” layer just below it. The compressed wood is usually dyed to match the rest of the woodworking project. In addition to being stiffer than a typical woodworking bench, the Husqvarna and Meltonian also weigh more due to the wood in them.
Both types of wood are excellent for woodworking projects of all kinds. They are extremely hardwearing and durable. They also resist cracking and swelling, which is why they’re used for everything from carvings to birdhouses. Each piece is hand-butted and sanded by hand to achieve its unique grain pattern. Both types are fairly inexpensive, especially considering they’re of such high quality.
If you have an odd piece of wood to work with, such as a strip of wood that’s too long or just about to become too long, you might consider purchasing a top workbench with a sliding cutting board attached. These boards are typically made out of stainless steel. Not only do they make the piece of wood easy to slide under a workbench top, they also allow you to perform difficult tasks such as shaping and straightening wood by simply sliding it under. Some manufacturers will even include this accessory as a standard feature. These additional accessories are becoming very popular with woodworking amateurs who need the convenience of a woodworking bench, but don’t have the room.
If you’d rather skip the sliding board option, woodworking aficionados can also choose a top workbench with an attachable tabletop. This type of woodworking bench has a flat surface on its underside, which is where the tabletop is attached. You can use this surface to cut or bend wood, and often woodworkers prefer the flat surface because it won’t interfere with their other woodworking chores. These benches are often referred to as butcher block workbenches because they’re built as such.
The bottom line is that woodworking bench tops provide great tools for woodworking. They can be an excellent choice for beginners to woodworking, offering both stability and versatility. They also provide ample work surfaces for woodworkers to work on. For the woodworking aficionado looking for a unique piece of furniture, these top workbenches offer a unique combination of functionality and beauty.
