The WIA Marketplace is full of both power and hand tools and to use some of these tools to their full potential, you need a good workbench. This is where Plate 11 Workbenches comes in. Founder Mark Hicks was on hand this past weekend to discuss the story behind his company and how on a dare from Christopher Schwarz, Mark was inspired to start making his own workbenches:

Mark built a pair of Split-Top Roubo benches specifically for WIA, but by the time we met up with him, he had already sold the model at his booth. Luckily, the second in the pair was on display at the Sterling Tool Works booth and thanks to Sterling company founder, Chris Kuehn, we have some beautiful pictures of this bench to share with our readers:

  1. Very nice!! Thanks for going and getting footage for those of us that couldn’t make it this year!

  2. May I just say what a comfort to find a
    person that really knows what they are talking about over the internet.
    You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people should check this out and understand
    this side of the story. It’s surprising you are not more popular because you certainly possess the
    gift.
