Congratulations, Joe, it will serve you well. It’s a nice home for your tools. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

That’s not a workbench. That’s a fine piece of furniture.

Stellar job on the build of your new bench..Plenty of storage under the bench is a must-have to house all the tools you need at hand at the bench. I know you’re glad to get it finished…...Now what’s next ?

Great, I’m glad you put rollers on that bench. Now it will be easier for me to roll it out the door to my truck. :)
Nice job on the transition of the grain down the drawer faces. I like this design.
