Last night, after several nights of working on and off on the project, I finally finished my workbench and I couldn’t be happier. There’s still a few loose ends to take care of (adding the shelf for heavier tool storage. I will write more about it in the project post.

I like the headline ” Why buy it when you can make it
That is what inspires a lot of woodworkers and machinists.
Sometimes at end of project I think of how much time and money I put into my project… doesnt really matter…..I can say “I MADE THAT”,

I do it mostly to save money, because otherwise my free time would be spent spending money =)
