« Part 7: The First dry fit this will give you an Idea of how big these benches really are. Part 8 of 21st Century Workbenches Project series Part 9: no8 starting on the tool boxes »

Well guys this project stalled when I went into the spa business. So now that that chapter is on hold I am back to working on my benches. I spent a couple hours with my son planing down the tops of my bench I have also got my uncles bench almost done I made all the slate and the bottom for the shelves this is really a nice bench and I have used his to help me make mine and the whole thing is coming together. I just got the wood to build the boxes for his bench and will get mine soon too. the boxes go between the tops and level it out so you can have one big flat top or have the boxes open in the middle for tool trays. I will be back at this tomorrow and hopefully have my bench assembled tomorrow The top is over 4 inches thick which made me really happy If I were to do this all over again I may have chose a bench with dogs oh well you just cant have it all I guess.
