looks great. the inlays really add a lot of character to it, and is a nice contrast to the light color of the bench. looks massive and very functional indeed. congrats!

This is a very nice bench and I would love to have it. No telling when I will get around to doing a decent one for my own shop.

LOL! Really like the butterflies. Well thought out, definitly functional. Maybe too pretty to use? The first nick might be painful if it were mine. :)

Thanks Doc and Bertha primary wood is BORG 2×6 constuction grade laminated together, in Washington State thats what they call Hem-Fir more Hem than Fir I suspect the inlays were peruvian walnut beacause I Had some left over from some boxs I made. The bench weighs (I’m geussing here) around 500LBs I can pick one end up but barely (is that big lump supposed to be sticking out of my abdomin). Dave

Is the “hem” hemlock? I moved to WV a year ago and had my first exposure to hemlock. For construction type stuff, I really like it. The stuff that was gifted to me has big, thick, pretty, even growth rings.

Yes it’s hemlock constuction grade not the nice straight grained stuff your talking about. It’s a little on the soft side and if my bench gets a few dings and dents, well it’s just charactor right.
