I had some new room in the basement utility room in the new house. Decided to make an archery bench! I’d love to see some benches to get ideas on what to add!

I’m thinking a draw board on the side would be a pretty easy addition. I have some extra shelves in the garage that I might put above the bench. Then some hooks to hang stuff!

It's always fun to create your own work space. Good luck and share the finished pics!

Very nice. Is that an apple bow press?

From: Ucsdryder

Bow vice is Apple. Bow press is Omni I believe. A guy on archerytalk was making them 7-8 years ago.

Looks like you have dowels as a bow vise. How did you figure out the spacing for those?

How do you like that bow vise, I've been seriously considering ordering one for a while now

It was cheap. I like cheap. Seems to work fine but I don’t have anything to compare it to! I’ll take a couple pictures tonight.

Suggestion- thrown some pegboard up behind your bench to hang tools and such. I like to be able to reach up and have my serving, tools, etc hanging there and its easy to organize.

U have an arrow on that bow?

Round one I put an arrow in. Juuuust in case. Lol.

UC, looking at that pic, it looks like your sight is not parallel with your arrow. I have the same issue with mine. How can I fix that? I ask, because I don’t like looking at my pins/housing through my peep and see they are off.

From: Ucsdryder

I believe it’s an optical illusion. If you look at the arrow it looks like it lines up with the arrow. Next time I’m down there I’ll take another picture.

It's an optical illoooosion - it's the pleats!

Yes, please take another pic. I have a Hoyt Carbon Spider Turbo and my sight is definitely is not parallel with my arrow. It doesn’t effect accuracy.....it’s just a nuisance when I can visually see the top edge of my pins at full draw and the inside/outside (bottom/top)of the housing window. Thanks for your help!
