So...let's say you need a quickie tuning bench

I like how the video for making something without tools is sponsored by a power tool company.

I like using dimension lumber for a simple portable bench, but the pipe legs look pretty weak. They have  bending moment right across the threads at the tee joint.  That won't last long.  they look pretty hard to store as well.

It would work better with a couple of simple saw horses.

Maybe it's just me but that table looked to be a little on the lowww side.  Anyone remember Dorf on Golf?  Maybe the next video will be Dorf on ski tuning.  :)

I think perhaps the video was the kernel of the idea for a quick and easy tuning bench rather than a specific template and that one who actually wanted a tuning bench might make the legs longer, the angles a bit more acute, put the top actually on top of the pipes, etc. If one made those adjustments, they might get a very nice bench for less money than I spent on my Holmenkol.

At the end of the day I took a quick look and thought I had gotten lucky. But no, there are some edge dings and even a small core shot.

So, improvised tuning bench in the garage at the condo.

Hmm, no electricity.
Even better improvised bench. There is even a hook for the soldering iron used to melt the metal grip.
