Bayley Compact

The Bayley Compact was designed for a Melbourne woodworker with very limited workshop space. He needed to combine practicality with storage in one small action-packed design. This bench features twin HNT Gordon face vices and the HNT Gordon tail vice. With six full-extension drawers, the Balyey Compact has lots of storage. The combination rock maple and bamboo sheet construction eliminates timber movement. This is the perfect bench for the woodworker operating with limited space.

If you only have a small workshop then your workbench has to be super-efficient. This is a form-follows-function workbench has zero gimmicks and 100% functionality. The twin HNT Gordon face vices can be used like a large Moxon style vice by placing a beam between them. The top edge face, legs and lower rail are all on the same plane allowing secure clamping with  a combination of holding strategies. The drawer faces are set back from the front by 10mm, keeping them clear of the work. The 19mm holes allow for the use of a variety of dogs and holdfasts.

We expect to customize this bench design to some degree. This bench was very specifically designed for the end-user and is an excellent example of a bespoke bench. You tell us the operational requirements that you need and we will design the perfect bench for you.
