Photo of the Stanton BenchIntroducing the Stanton Bench MK2!

The Stanton Bench is designed for people who have limited space to store tools or even to work in. The plans for the MK1 and MK2 have been available on Etsy and proven very popular.

If you live in an apartment block without a garage to tinker in then the Stanton Bench is for you. It can be used on a kitchen or dining room table without fear of scratching any surfaces.

Combine the Stanton Bench with some good power tools that have great dust extraction and you can build pretty much any furniture or project you can think of. When you have finished being creative you simply unscrew 3 of the legs that lock the front apron onto the bench and slide the bench under your bed.

This is not to say that you can’t use the Stanton bench in your garage if you have one. As a matter of fact, Dave has quite a large woodshop and relies on the Stanton bench often for use as a docking station and assembly table. Dave loves it!
