Great looking bench Brian! It looks very sturdy and obviously has plenty of storage right where you need it. I see you have plenty of space to work in at your shop and that is always a plus!

Great looking bench. The dovetail joinery is a really nice detail. And adding drawers to the bench is a smart way of gaining more storage. Nice idea.

Looks great Brian, how did you make the big dovetail on the end?

Great bench. Drawers are a nice touch. How big is you shop/school
Curious about the dove tail as well.
Would love to have that kind of shop space.

Sick bench!, I am about to embark on something very similar and have a couple of questions. First, how did you level the top of the bench? Second, what type of hardware did you use to tighten the base, and about how much did it cost you. Finally, are you in South Korea?
