Had a great and productive weekend in the shop. I’m satisfied with the work bench and calling it done with the last few additions. Added a couple of drawers to put stuff in and a shelf to the right. Put in a peg board on one end. Installed a sliding dead man and made some bench dogs. All in all a good weekend. Thanks for looking.

Great bench.

You’d think I’d get tired of oohing and ahhing over other people’s benches. But I don’t ;)

Now that is a handsome bench! I am really liking the size and added features you put into it. I am going to have to do some big changes in my shop soon and think something like this would work perfectly for me…. Will have to favorite it to come back for notes…

Thanks for sharing…

It’s spectacular. I could go on and on about all the wonderful details but you already know what they are;) The right front leg is my favorite stretch of grain.

That is a sharp looking bench. Congratulations.

Is that all oak except for the legs and chop? Must weigh a pound or two. Nice bench.
