Two Legged Work Bench on E Bay!

Yes it's true, a work bench with only two legs! It was made by Lervad and I've seen them in adverts in old woodworking magazines.
I guessed at first it was meant to be attached to a wall but the end  cap prevents that. Who knows how it was meant to be used without falling over or shooting across the floor

Having said all that, it has a great front vice for dovetailing and if you were to extend the width of the top with more beech or add a tool well and build a solid base (with 4 legs!) you would have a nice compact and cheap bench.


  1. Hi David

    The bench is supposed to be places alongside a bunch of other benches. All connected to a common tool tray.
    Here's a link to the company's home page showing how it is done.
    And another search for the pictures of it.
    Most Danish elementary schools had a woodworking classroom filled with those benches.
    I don't know the reason for having long benches on one side and short ones on the other, but I guess it was to make sure that you could get around the group of benches in the middle of the room.
    At my elementary school I think there were around 30 benches in total.


    1. Thank you Jonas, very interesting. I've done another post just now which should explain everything. All the best, David.

  2. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article. Im positive that it will be very popular. It has good and valuable content which is very rare these days. I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. Thanks...
