Great Original Condition.
We recently acquired this find at an Estate sale of amaster word working craftsman inLitchfield county CT.
Here we have a beautifully rugged relic of days gone by that stopped us in our tracks at a recent sale…a walnut hardwood Master Carpenter’s workbench, circa early 1930’s. The patina is absolutely amazing. This hasn't been made to look aged or distressed rather, this is the real thing that we all pay $1,000's for at antique shops for.
The gentleman who owned this bench would have been over 100 years old, if he were with us today. He was a master craftsman who created many of the hand made clocks and cabinetsin their simple home beginning in the early 1930’s, and we could only imagine how many hours he must have spent working away at this very bench.
This authentic vintage carpenter’s bench bears all of the patina and markings of its age and purpose. You’ll find both deep and superficial cuts, grooves, and wear marks… small paint splatters, a few small burn marks and more… each helping to tell the story of its history. There are two steel vices at either end of the bench in perfect working order. There are also 4 original pegs of different lengths that fit into the square holes along the front of the bench, (they can be moved as needed). We found this antique bench to be neat, orderly, and lovingly maintained in the basement workshop of the home. We’ve taken care not to change a thing, simply giving it a linseed oil treatment to bring out its beautiful tone and texture.
We think this would make a great sofa table, small kitchen island, hall table, or even a workbench once again for today’s craftsman. (Although personally we think it deserves some showing off!)
Here are its dimensions:
Width: The bench top itself is 17” wide,
(including the extension of the vice on the front left, it is 22”)
Length: 72” long
Weight: 150+ lbs.
