I agree with Motthunter’s comment. The bench is nice but it would be great if you had some more pictures to post. For those of us who are acknowledged shop addicts visual tours of other shops is a real treat. :)

I’ll try to get some more pix for you. The problem is that since I took that photo, I’ve mostly had at least one project sitting on top of the bench so I’ll have to clean it off! I added a back bench with 4 drawers since then, too.
