« Part 1: Finally getting started!! Part 2 of Cypress Workbench series no next part

I found a super deal at an estate sale so I will not continue with building my cypress framed workbench. I picked up Grizzly’s top of the line 9 drawer bench in perfectly new condition for $150. That’s right… I said $150. The lady offered it to me for $100 and I said I would give her a little more than that….ha!!!

Nice score. You could complete the cypress bench as a joinery bench if you raise it up a bit.

What an incredible find! (That was very fair of you wanting to give a little more for the bench since that’s still only a small fraction of what it is worth. I hope the estate actually gets the extra $50 and not the estate salesperson!)
