I have to confess this is not one of mine a good friend of mine who took up wood turning about eight months ago after I gave him some ornaments that I had made on the lathe and he had a full size Grizzly lathe but got into making pens pretty heavy so he sold the Grizzly and bought the Delta well he needed a place to put it so he constructed this work center as I call it and I told him I was going to post it so he can see the comments because I feel its a beautiful bench its sided with cypress from our local mill and you should see some of the pens he makes for only 8 months his work looks like he’s been at it for 20 years.

Thanks for looking and please let him know what you think.

Thanks LJ’s

Everyone knows that you can’t do woodworking in a space that is that neat and organized. You need tools, hardware, sawdust, and random boards scattered all around the shop to be a quality woodworker.
