Looks solid, nice work. I see you read one of the recent article on work benches.

Kevin, this is a nice looking bench. It is a tool that any of us would enjoy having in our shop.
What wood did you use in its construction?

Nice solid workbench. I’m envious of the room you appear to have in your shop. You can actually walk around your bench!
Nice Job!!!!!!! Merry Christmas!!..............Jim

Finally, got around to getting this bench finished up. I had to cost cut a bit and went with steel screws for the twin-screw vise. Save the Guild at least a hundred dollars going that way. I love Big Wood Vise’s big wooden screws but I can’t afford them most of the time. The bench will be on display and used this weekend at The Woodworking Show in Overland Park, Kansas.
