Cantputjamontoast I built this bench a few years back and really enjoyed working on it I especially liked the front end lowering and raising platform with the birds beak. My only draw back on it was that I follow the plans and made the bench height according to specks and it was a tad bit to high for me. My recommendation is to build it to fit your own height this can be accomplish by stand up straight and let you arms hang along your sides and have someone measure the distance from the floor to a area above your wrist but not higher than your mid section. I read this some where and made my more traditional woodworking bench according to this formula and its made a world of different in comfort. Good luck on your build looking forward to see what you come up with…Blkcherry
