Nice bench!

You can tell a real Lumberjock by the fact that his wall calendar has pictures of tools instead of naked women.

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.
