Built this bench bench years ago. I think it cost me under 50 bucks. I had planned to use it until I could make a nicer one but can’t seem to find a good reason to retire it. It has served me well.. The saw bench and saw bench slave were built at same time as well as the long nosed hand screws..Seven years of bashing and all have survived.

Heck I can see what you like, that is a nice bench, has correct joinery so it is probably as tight today as it was back then. Do you like the tray? I see them and think cool, my next bench gonna put one in, then I’ll drop by a friends house who has a tray on his bench, and it’s always full of shavings, and dust.

Nice setting to work at, plenty of natural light.

Thanks for showing us.

I like a tool well when working on smaller things. It keeps tools organized and close at hand. When planing a lot it holds shavings and makes it easy to scoop in the barrel at the end of the bench. I have a “filler” board that fills it when doing larger pieces or finishing.

Iron, I love your bench. It has all the hallmarks of a seasoned Old World craftsman. Meant to meet the demands of that craftsman. It has obviously served you well and I am certain continue to do so for quite some time. My Best.
