Steve, I like your honesty and humility. And I like your projects too. Thanks for cheering up a very dreary day for me.

I like the purple! Nice project. Simple… and I like that it only takes 7 2×4’s. And… that it’s purple!
Of course… I prefer pink :)

Great project! Where in the world did you find such purple paint?

Love your videos Steve. I keep looking at that bench and I’m just not sure it’s BRIGHT enough.
Keep them coming and thanks loads for taking the time to do this.

Nice bench, looks easy enough for the newest beginner to do successfully.

It reminds me of my Harbor Freight pin nailer for some reason. But it is still a great bench!..........;-J
