4-Way Workbench

So in a interview this morning on the radio about his new book "Buseyisms", Gary Busey recounted a story from the 80's when he went over the handle bars of his Harley and split his scull open from his brow to the top of his head. He says he died on the operating table and entered the after life as a small 1/4" thick floating soul. He was surrounded by luminescent floating orbs with spears of light jabbing out from their centers, He was given the choice to stay or come back to the living. Ha ha ha ha ha lol. Sometimes he can rise above the cheap laughs and actually be funny, his head hit the pavement, he was still seeing stars ha ha ha.

Don't go away yet, here is an excellent plan for a turners workbench with limited shop space. I like my rural setting and with a lot of hard work, have all the shop space I want. Most people are not, nor have any desire, to be in that position but would still like to pursue a craft, in a small space.

"The Complete Book Of Home Workshops" has a couple of nice plans for workbenches to suit these needs. Today I will upload the plan for a wood turners bench. This 4 in 1 bench with a 14" band saw and a drill press would be all the larger machines a woodturner would need to produce some nice work. It would fit in a small space, and the bench does multiple functions including mounting and storing of a very substantial lathe. In this case a full size iron bed lathe that looks like a Rockwell.
