You will never find one like this ever again.
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.
