Nice bench!

Well, it started out as 200 board feet of maple, so it weighs way more than I can move. The top was scary heavy. I tell you what, though, it doesn’t budge when I’m planing something. I also hide under it when tornado season rolls around.

I’d love to see a close up pic of the tool wall as well, especially the Plane totes.

Yehp, that is a bid bench/storm shelter. The top looks great.
