Wow, it is beautiful. Your workbench is much nicer than mine. I bet you can’t wait to use it. I spent about 6 weeks building my workbench, and it is not at all as beautiful as yours. Very well done.

Wow that is a really nice workbench. I’d be afraid of scrathing it. Looks good.

That seems like a really nice bench, good job, your pictures are coming cropped on the right side, try to resize them to 640 by 480 pixels and that should fix it right away.

Looks great! My second workbench will probably be along these lines. Do you mind if I ask roughly how much the lumber cost you?

This is a gorgeous bench that you are building. It is going to be a nice addition to your shop.

Don’t wanna be a wet noodle here, but finishing with oil or lacquer that close the heater unit is a REALLY BAD idea.

it cost me a little over 400 for the material. most of it is made from 2 inch thick stock, which i got for 2.85 a board ft, or something like that. never thought about the finish next to the furnace. good thing it has been fairly warm, so the furnace hasn’t really been running.

Looks good so far!! Your bench is built like mine only I made mine from hard maple. The plan you used has got to be originally from Woodsmith Magazine for October/November 2007 (Volume 29, No 173). I don’t know if Plans Now and Woodsmith are connected or not but I’m sure the plans are the same. You can read about how mine was built at: http://www.oldaveswoodshop.com/Workbench.php if you care to make the comparisons.
