Woodworking Bench Portfolio


Dave & His Customers

Here are some photos of just some of my satisfied customers were I was able to provide personal delivery and setup of their benches.


Customer Built Benches

Please send me a photo or two of your bench built from my video series to post here for me and others to admire!  Email them to info@swigerwoodworks.com.

Customer Pete Wehner has completed this bench build. I love the curly maple front apron and drawer fronts. They really dress up his bench – a bench to be proud of Pete! Here is a testimonial he sent along about my video series.

Hi Dave,

I’ve completed my workbench and I know it would not have turned out as well as it did without your instructional video series. You made it so much easier by walking me through every step of the process. I strongly recommend your video’s to anyone who attempts to build this workbench and have it turn out as if a professional made it.

Thanks again,
Pete from Minnesota

Customer Bob Riffle has completed his bench build and wow what a fantastic job – nicely done Bob! Here is a bit of a testimonial he sent along with the photo.

“Dave …I finally finished my bench and it came out awesome.  It’s everything I’ve wanted and more.  I’m not a bad woodworker but I truly mean it when I say I could not have done this nearly as well without your DVD.  I made each jig exactly as you said and everything came out perfect.  Just look at those box joints!...The dimensions of this bench are 7′ long not counting end vise, 29″ wide not counting shoulder vise and 35″ tall.  The top core is 3″ thick.  The Veritas Twin screw is on 18″ centers and your method of installing it is spot on.  I mean both vises work perfectly and smooth as butter!…I really can not thank you enough for everything.  You are a true gentleman and wonderful master wood worker.  I only wish we were neighbors so we could create some saw dust together and shoot the breeze about wood working in person. Thank you again and please keep in touch.”

Workbench with Cabinets

After receiving the bench built in this video series, my client had a set of matching custom cabinets built – wow!
