After a week of storing every tool on the floor these draws and work bench couldn’t have come sooner. They are the first “real” project to come out of the shop…ever so even thought they aren’t perfect (trust me they aren’t), I am pretty happy with them. Plus we (my father and I) have learned a lot form the project.

I’ve looked over all three of your projects. It looks like you are on your way. If you need any help, just ask. There are several pretty fair woodworkers here who will give you lots of advise. Some of it might even be worth what you pay for it.

Thos., that’s so funny it’s true. :-)

Stephen, great project. I really need to do something like this as well.

Nice! Something that nice would stick out like a sore thumb in my 2×4 world. Great job.

Great bench Stephen. A lot of storage space, and work space as well.

I love this place, so many positive people! The truth is, it helps a lot when your just starting out fighting a mean learning curve

Great looking bench and cabinet Stephen! Did you and your dad design and build from scratch or work from a plan?

I have yet to tackle larger scale cabinets… That should change when I start turning my garage into a real workshop after the new year starts.
