I started this bench in 1993. It has gone through good times and bad alike. Like an old friend. Over the years I have added vises and a case of drawers. Just recently gave the bench a bit of an over haul. I made the twin vise screw from # 40 roller chain and sprokets from Surplus Center. Lots of time working on that. I have an import pattern makers vise that is let into the top. I like the vise a lot. The cabinet is simple and I wanted some paint on it. Don’t really have an answer as to why.It works great for me as a hand tool bench and I am working on a hanging tool cabinet to go over it. I’ll post that once done. The top is soldid maple saved from a bowling ally. That stuff was hard to take appart. I then planned it and glued it. Thanks for looking. Oh yeah. the shop stool is a dump find. I made the crazy hard seat but still love it. Sorry for the bad pics. The space in there is very tight.
