|Jeff's Josh Finn Bench|
What I find so cool about the bench are two (2) things. First, I'm a sucker for torsion boxes. I think this bench makes great use of them to provide a wide and very usefully variety of clamping scenarios. Second, I think the Roubo's have become a bit too dominant lately. While they are a great bench, so are many other designs. Jeff's definitively non-Roubo bench helps illustrate this point.
Yet, as you'll see by reading Jeff's post, he's currently reading The Workbench Design Book and may be falling under it's design spell.
What do you ladies and gentleman, you woodworkers, use for a bench? Please share.
