A Weight of Work Benches

  Kristen came home with three different work benches yesterday to add to the one we already had in our driveway. And as you may have seen in our last post we had just taken a workbench, we got a couple of days ago, over to the WAC. Believe it or not we even have another work bench under the house that I can't picture as it is packed away. It will be, should be a subject of a blog post by itself as it is such a cracker, if I do say so myself. (It came from a science lab of the University of Queensland back in the 1930's)
But all these work benches got me to thinking that there should be a name for a multiple number of work benches.
Just as you have a "murder of crows" or a "brace of pistols" or a "gaggle of geese" I thought perhaps a "whack of work benches" a "worry of  work benches"  or a "wide of work benches" would suit. But after moving this many work benches this week I decided a "weight of work Benches" would be most apt.

This one is my favourite.  


  1. They do look heavy but totally fabulous!

  2. Your favourite is my favourite. I think it might sink my kayak though.

  3. They all have so much character though I don't envy you having to move the buggers :)

  4. Wow, can't wait to see what you do with these!! The last workbench looked fab in the "after" shots!!!

  5. Great workbenches. Good to see the feature on WAC in the Courier Mail on Saturday too.

  6. I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

  7. I want one!!! Love the one with the draws... I don't recon I could manage to get one home! (Nor do I have any room...) Did it take a truck to get them there?! X

  8. That one is my favourite too!!
    I must be tired...I just read that you had a work bench packed away under your house since the 1930's...giggle...

  9. ha a weight of work benches sounds apt. I like what you like!

  10. Your favourite is my favourite too. Did you beep me this morning as I was walking down Oxford St, someone did and I turned back and thought it was you? If it was sorry about the bewildered look on my face.

  11. Oh need one of these for my work shop space. I know it's been along time. I hope that all is well. I've been getting ready for my soon to go back to college.

  12. I like old design that you post in your blog. Checkout my favorite design also.
