Both are great man. I’ve recently made a pair of the bench burrows and i’m in the middle of making their full size counterparts. Keep yourself dusty!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. The first few steps in this new hobby have been quite a humbling education.

They’re pretty especially the pencil box and made only with hand tools. Great job and keep them coming!
