your welcome Brandon, you sure have a nice bench and i will envy it always. I just feel the 21st century bench or the lang bench as I am calling it meets my needs more at this time. I like all the support holes and stuff that are fixed in place, one major change I am making in my bench is the tops will be 4 inches thick instead of the 3 inches that are in the plans. this will raise the bench height up a bit for me and will have more mass and a beefier look. It looks good in my drawings. I am going to have my friend do it in sketch up, so i can post the modifications. I am also thinking of adding a 3rd vise to it maybe a pattern makers vise maybe a leg vise like the shaker and your bench. i don’t see the point in not utilizing the back half of the bench. Are you making anything on that lovely bench Brandon have you got to use your vises and hold fasts yet ?
