No, it’s not a new magic act. It's a bench in a box! Atleast that’s what one of the guys calls my new knock-down workbench. When you think about it, it’s a fitting description because the bench provides a solid, stable worksurface like you’d expect from a bench. In fact, there’s even a tool tray underneath.

Then, once a job is completed, the bench can be “knocked down” and stored in a compact box that you carry like a suitcase. The best thing about this knock-down design is it makes it easy to take the bench out to the driveway or backyard, or to a friend’s house to help on a project.
