She’s a real Beaut Paul. I hope that when I get around to making a new table I can accomplish it as well as you have.

Very nicely done! Did you design it yourself? That workbench is exactly what I have been looking for to build in my shop.

A good solid bench

I hope you get a lot of use out of it

Looks to be a sturdy bench and I like the accent stripes for the bench dog holes. Well done.

Very Nice! What kink of wood did you use….are you going to apply any type of finish on it? I ask because I plan on building one here in the near future.
