I don’t think it looks massive enough! Can you make it a liitle bigger? ;-)

What a nice bench. This is one we all should have. Great job.

Does anybody think it’s too big? ;) Well, it’s definitely heavy. 7 sheets of plywood, 2 sheets of MDF, the lumber, and all the tools inside the drawers combined make it almost impossible to move the bench even an inch.

Very good.
You don’t want a tiny bench that wobbles and wiggles every time you use it !
THIS will work PERFECT !
