Excellent use of available space. Looks fantastic. The light is a great detail many forget to add.

Living as an expat for the last 8 years I was forced to create some unique work benches for my living quarters, nothing as nice as this though. Doug

Nice work on this bench. I wish I had a bench like that in the first small apartment that my wife and I had when I we was starting out. I did have a toolbox with my tools, but no room for a bench and I did my work on a small porch. That was 45 years ago.

I really like the dark stain—not a common color for workbenches! What’s hiding behind the fold-down door on the front?

Absolutely outstanding work. I have often looked at those plans and thought it would make a great heirloom project for one of my sons.

Jayseedub, there is a shelf. The opening allows access under the top (clamping & temp tool storage).The dark stain was for my wife. The bench was originally going into the re-room. It was so much better than the bench in the shop, it never left the shop.
