Just bit the bullet and ordered an EZ Green Bowpress from LCA.

It should be here in a few days. In the meantime, I want to build a bench to mount it on as I think my garage workbench will be too high. Plus that's for other projects. I want a dedicated archery bench.

What's a good height for working on a bow in a bowpress?

I use a friends "archery shop" he has in his basement. After a few remodels he has it built on to a stand and is freestanding so that you can be on either side of the bow. It a lot more user friendly because you can easily get to either side. I'd say the fingers of press are slightly below chest height and it works well. He also has a draw board build into stand.

32" if you're short. 36" if you're tall. I will second the free-standing so you can access both sides plan.

I had him send me a pic. Said top of fingers are 48”” and it pretty ideal we are both about 6’. You can also see the draw board on off side.

Just moved the press to a cart, I liked John’s idea of accessing both sides.
