I know this phrase get’s used alot, but
“that is a work of art”!

It shows a lot of care went into it for it to come out so beautiful.
The details are at excellent quality.

Thankyou for sharing your great work.

Impressed! The color adds a lot visually but this is clearly a highly functional bench. Are the stripes in the top recessed or flush with the top?

I will look into your project post for sure to learn more. I have the FWW New Fangled Workbench and hate it. I either have to upgrade its components or junk it and go Roubo.

Unisaw, the stripes are the same thickness as the top. I ripped some in varying thickness’s , and glued up as I went. I thought it would look random as a bar code. at least that’s, what I was shooting for.
this was the best highly functioning item I’ve ever made. use it every day.

This definitely belongs on the smackdown thread and this project should be tagged with the smackdown tag!

Very Nice!

Very nice job on the bench Door dude. Well done. Tedstor. If it wasn’t for the turn signals and lack of kick start I’d say pre unit construction Triumph.

I’m afraid that wookbench is just too pretty to use. It would be in my dinning room!

That is a great workbench and a wonderful addition to your shop. You did a fine job on it.
