I'm still a beginner - been doing this for about 5 years now, since we bought our first house, and I wanted to do some remodeling... that led to putting some paneling and trim work in the downstairs room... which led to making built-in shelves around the fireplace... which led to a few custom cabinets in the kitchen... to now where the garage is rapidly filling up with tools and I'm starting to do some real solid wood furniture.
Still lots to learn (and more tools to acquire), but I'm really into it and enjoying it so far. Hope it gets even better as I gain more skills & experience.

On to the workbench top. I bought some 8/4 soft maple for the top, which was the most expensive part of the bench (still < $200 though). Ripped it to a bit over 3” on my Ridgid portable tablesaw – yes, you can rip 8/4 maple on that ...
I’ve been wanting a real wood-working bench for a while, instead of the shaky typical “garage bench” I’ve been using. Needed something I could clamp a panel in for planing across & diagonal, a vice with a larger capaci...
