You can’t have a workshop without trestles and you never seem to have enough of them. I use them for so many things from supporting large planks (when cutting them up) to stacking components when machining and creating (with an addition of a piece of ply ) a set up table. So, the new workshop, new trestles – I have made them to the same height and design as the first ones I made, whilst training 10 years ago. I still have those original trestles and they have been in continuous use. The amount of weight they can take is incredible, I have loaded them up with piles of boards whilst sifting through to find the right piece and I haven’t heard a single creak. I reckon they should last me out, but I still need a few more.
