To show our support for this important cause tomorrow we are offering all our readers a weekend discount if you come in to our store "Nook Vintage"of 30% off but you have to mention this post to obtain this.

The Mother of all Workbenches

Nice chunky legs set on castors for ease of movement. A shelf on the bottom for all your storage and small drawers on either side. This workbench needs a kitchen or a large space to stand alone. Work equally well as a shop counter and will suit a retailler too. So many uses and so prcatical as well as handsome. Love the patina in a chocolate timber and nicely worn over the years.
