That is a beautiful bench. I’d be afraid to scratch it.

How can you do that to us, just post one picture like that. We are starving for workbench pics, always.

Geez, this is awesome. Did you design it or find a plan? Its a fantastic tool for your shop as well as an heirloom.

My bench…? Someday… someday.

Beautiful. I don`t know if that is a term one can use
about a work bench. Almost too nice to use.

Wow! I have been working very sporadically on mine now for about 6 months. I hope it turns out half as good as yours. I might have to pick your brain at some point about the tail vise. I’m still a little intimidated about making mine. Great job.

I would agree with all comments. More pictures would be very inspiring; it is almost too beautiful to use; I would love to have that in my shop.

It is clear that this must weigh a lot. Very heavy duty and something that will last a long time. I would love to see plans for this one.

Great job!!!!!
