So if your workbench lost in our “Most Pathetic Workbench” contest, is that a good thing? It’s time to let the Internet decide!
We’ve posted all 121 photos of the entries we received for the contest on Flickr.com. No names were used, as promised. And then, while I was bored one afternoon (hey, it happens) I added snide comments about each bench.
And here’s the fun part: You can add your own comments as well. All the photos are on Flickr.com, so if you have an account (they’re free) you can add your two cents. Don’t agree with who we chose as our prize winners? Let us know. Have something funnier to say about a bench? Put it up there.
I think the great thing about this collection of photos is that after viewing it, I will never ever complain about any of the workbenches I’ve ever worked on. Here’s the other thing I learned: Behind every pathetic workbench is a tenacious (perhaps parsimonious) woodworker.
