« Part 1: work bench Part 2 of Shop builds series Part 3: work bench - my first holdfasts and dog holes »

It has been a while since I had a camera, so I did not think to do any blog entries. Here is my bench crammed in my corner with some work still to do.

I am happy with the results so far and learning along the way. I will appreciate to have all of the things that I know could have done better stand out and be right there in front of me as I am working on something new.

I really like the shelf underneath and cannot wait to build a cabinet for it.

It has been built with all HD bought pine and scraps that I bought from a hardwood store. The piece of oak for the leg vise cost me $4.

I am currently working on getting my Colombian vise up to snuff to install on the end which I am capping in white oak as well a white oak jaw.

All comments and criticisms welcome.
