As Don would say (with a giggle) that’s great! I’ve just finished reading Christopher Schwartz’s book on work benches and I love the idea of SYP…especially since it’s lower cost and readily available here in SC.

Excellent bench! Making a new one is on my list. I was looking at doing the same one from the magazine. How were the vises to install?

Nice bench. Did you use s screw with an oversize nut to keep the leg vise jaw parallel?

Great looking workbench. I trust it will see years of use, and hopefully become a family heirloom!
