Here is my new project guys and girls :)
Due to my thoughts about death of which I am thinking a lot ricently, not on a negative way but as a fact.
I have came to an understanding that many woodworkers have left behind some increadble work but not reflected on the workbenches where they have created these projects. So I have decided to leave after myself something nice which would be worth while keeping in the family instead of throu it in to born fire after I gone. So here is only one stand that I have managed to bring to the stage ready for decorative layers of gold, stain and laquer. Made of beech wood, hand carved, own design.

Yuri, I’m looking forward to watching the progress of this remarkable bench. Hopefully, since you are in your early thirties, the bench will be an antique before it is handed down in your family by reason of death.

WOW I am in awe… You are right not to many workbenches are left behind as a true heirloom and sought after for their design well done. Looking forward for the end product…

Thats a great bench carving. I’d be a little concerned about some foot kicking the toe nails on the leg carving.

Thank you all,
lol Terry love your question, well adopting some one takes hell of a time, nurves and money – all that I would like to sepend on my projects – see how selffish I am :)
Karson, yea I thought of it too but as I am restorer myself – I do love to create some headakes for my collegues. Well could be a good idea to mark a red line around the bench and put a large sign – DO NOT TOUCH – nah, I am gona work on it, so me would be the first who is gona kick it lol, and I am not gona cry about it – history, lol you know.

Thank you all for your time and comments.
