This is a workbench I made as a secrect housewarming gift for my brother. The mortise & tenon are connected using a Drawbore oak pin. The tenon pic was taken prior to drilling. Sorry should’ve taken more pics of the process. The bench is on shop dollies just to move it around.

Quite a housewarming gift, excellent work, love the painted cabinets under he bench.

Something about paint and natural together really works for me.

This is a wonderful gift to a brother. Its a fine workbench and you’ve done a great job on it and I love the cabinet underneath. Perhaps you could take a few more pictures of it. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.
