The design is fascinating. I’d like to know more/see more about what’s happening underneath the top

Now that is impressive. Glad I’m not the guy that has to move it!

I’ll bet if you put a vise on that, it wouldn’t move when you planed a board!

That’s a hefty bench. Nice work!

Great looking piece, well built, & designed. It must weigh a ton.

Boy, could I make a lot of stuff with all of that material.LOL

Another beautiful job. I’m drooling over that walnut (and trying to compute how many jewelry boxes I could have made out of those chunks of wood). Wow.
