Nice bench, like the height. I’m finding I need a taller bench in my shop. My back is killing me after a day in the shop from leaning over all the time. Need better posture while working.

Glen, this is a nice bench that was a welcome addition to your friend’s shop, I am sure. At one time I thought that shop furniture only needed to be functional but, after seeing posts like this, where both form and function are addressed in the build I have completely changed my opinion and now believe that shop furniture can look good as well as being functional.

Hey glen. That is a great workbench with all these drawers . It is nice and long and has an overhang for clamping projects down during assembly! And you can walk all around it. I hope your friend really appeciates you!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for posting it!.................Jim

16 drawers – what I could do with 16 drawers. Can I be your friend?
