Gorgeous bench higtron! What are the overall dimensions you went with? Is that all pine/doug fir? Looks great enjoy it for years of building.

Thanks Autumn,and TC the overall dimensions are 34” wide, and just under 8’ long it sits 37” high. It was a long build every thing on the bench is laminated there is no board othe than the leg vice bigger than a 2×6 from HD and in Washington State thats what they call Hemfir its a mixed bag. The inlays and plugs are Puruvian Walnut, The dowels Holding the stretchers are some walnut dowels my nieghbor gave me.

From the position of the leg vice I assume you are left-handed. It’s a beauty, and being a southpaw myself, mine will be somewhat similar.

Looks good! Why not fit a couple of drawers for go to items? Also, a little piece of suede leather on the vice jaws really helps with slick material.
