It is a very good looking bench, the deadman style is an eye catcher too. Nice job Joe. Now get to work among shavings!

Nice bench! Would love to have that but it won’t fit in my little work space so I guess you get to keep it. LOL! Nice work!

Very nice bench, the mix of different hardwoods in your laminations is very distinctive.

Absolutely inspirational!

Damn Joe, I can’t wait to start my bench. I just hope it looks as good as yours. I love that design on your deadman. It’s very unique.

Thanks all! I’ve certainly enjoyed using it – really focused right now on getting all of the clutter off of it and into shop made cabinets!!! What’s your next project?

I was just looking at your router table project and it was so nice i checked out your bench. Both are gorgeous, what a shop you must have to enjoy. Those chops might be my favorites of all i have seen, wonderfully done.

Have your say...
