Nice bench. Nice find on that old Wilton vise. I would like to get my hands on one of those someday. Well done.

It’s looking really good.
One wonderful workbench you have now.
And all that wonderful storage space that will add weight to the bench.
Best thoughts,

I saw this bench in one of the woodworking magazines and loved it right off. I saved the plans but I don’t have the skill, or money, to build something so beautiful but you did a great job. Love the color too.
