Wow, you are in trouble now… Just wait, after your wife or girlfriend sees your new bench, it’s going to be harder to make furniture that’s better looking than your bench! You’ve got your work cut out for you now. LOL

Very, very nice workbench! Almost too nice to call it a workbench :-) Is that front Veritas vice a current production model?

Nice Job :) may I Make a suggestion of adding a ramp or ramps to at least one end of the tool tray to minimize frustration of getting small tools out :) this is a small plus to add to an already excellent project

take care
