Your going to be so very happy with your new bench. I completed mine about 6 months ago and use it daily. The best hand tool is a good bench and yours looks like it will work beautifully. Cute little girl too. Mine is 16 months and will be hand planing soon. Put ramps on your tool tray, you’ll be glad you did. And a bottle opener is a nice addition too. Have fun, and take your time, your bench could be with you a very long time.

Very nice looking bench!
Is that a marble floor in your shop? Do you live in a church? :-)

Very Nice, I like this table, for me, i would have to cut down the legs some to make it a More of a Shorter Bench for me to roll under.
But I like it. Very nice.
