I can finally breathe easy. I built a new workbench this summer in my shop which is 250km from home. But I finally lugged the beast home and into the house. Got it reassembled and can now get to work on it.

I feel relieved and ready to start something new. I think a saw till is next up.

Here is the link to the project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/337329

Nice bench! I know how you feel, I’ve been working on a desk for my wife for what feels like an eternity! It’s been so long I don’t remember what my shop looks like without a big desk in the middle of it! All that’s left is a final coat and some buffing. I acquired a vintage work bench and can’t wait to get it all set up and play with it but first I have to keep swmbo happy. There is a great sense of accomplishment that comes from completing a project. Wish I was like Steve and could pump out projects daily! Lol

I agree with you. Over this weekend I will finish the largest table I have ever built. It will be great to have it out of the shop. Batch of dressers up next.

Great looking bench Brent, Breathe Easy now. Here is a quick simple build I put together last week, the slots have 3/8” magnets for extra protection from tipping out

Nice work, always good to cross a project off the list.

Sure is hard to start a new project after working so long and hard on a big one!
