Recently, I've had a design idea for building a adjustable woodcarving table. The design would allow me the ability to hold my work in place and at different angles, if needed. Woodcarvers have a variety of ways to hold their wood while they work. Some might use an adjustable vice while others might use a sawhorse with clamps. This woodcarving table design that has been in my notes for awhile and today I've completed it…with a few extras features to be added in the future if needed. After a few trips to my local wood store to get oak wood and brass screws, the table was finished with little effort and time. This workspace is much larger then my previous table and is fully adjustable up to 90 degrees which I really like.
I've looked at carving tables made by Veritas and swedish post carving stations, and may have to build one in the future, but for now, and for most of my relief carving work, this carving table will do the trick.
This wood carving table design is custom made to fit over a bench press vice to keep the table and work stable. It is fully adjustable and can lay flat or be tilted 90 degrees straight up. A few bench dog holes with bench dogs will complete this project and help me hold my carvings securely in place.
