I am currently making my own bench. It’s nowhere near as sophisticated as the one you’ve made but it does allow me to appreciate the effort you have put in to this marvellous construction. Great bench, well done.

That’s one of those plans in the back of my head right now…and it’s been there for awhile…but I need to get the energy up to do it…nicely done…and looks very useful…or is the fact I’m lazy today because I ate too much breakfast…that’s probably it. Does that mean I’m going to make such a beautiful bench later today? Nope…but I’ll enjoy the inspiration from your efforts for the rest of the day .

nicely done, I was planning on building the very same bench, but ended up going a different route. you did a really good job on this one. nice joinery, and tail vise! the shoulder vise is great as well!

Nice, I built one very similar to this, we used the same plans and inspiration..I however did not dovetail the tail vise.. Looks terrific!

This workbench is great. It’s a very heavy duty traditional workbench and I know that you are proud of it.

Very nice bench, excellent wood usage. I hope you harvested the wood yourself, that looks expensive!
