    Laminating the legs and cutting up those big slabs you put in the top would prevent the whole bench from twisting. It does look great but it all might twist further down the road.

    Very nice bench that will get work pleasant and done efficiently. I don't mind staining nor those brackets (they'll probably hold more than most of us will live).

    Well, I thought was a terrific "show" today. You gave us a running explanation what your goals were, why you made some mistakes you ran into, along with what DID work. That, to me is important (And perhaps that's why I shaved a point or two of others who never say a word. I know they know what they're doing on the project, but I, for one, just never was able to get my "mind reading" to work it seems. 😉

    BUT, you finished and that was IT! I was hoping to see the final package. Now I'm largely joking in saying that, however I just LIKE to see the finished project. If for no other reason that it's easier to STEAL all or parts of your design; It just makes it simpler.

    And last, I've been on the fence as to just how large or small my next bench should be and I think the size you built your bench is quite close for what I'll need. And with that, thanks again.

    Really liked your work. I have a workbench which is old style and second hand, I am planning to remake the legs and upcycle the top with some dogholes and new vises. After watching your video, I realized that these are fairly simple things to do. Thank you.

    What a Great looking bench… the downside for a hobby woodworker is that you have to need space to build it and you have to own equipment and tools for 5 to 10 grand…. and at least you have to be able to get your hands on these old pieces of wood…. nevertheless brilliant work

    Interesting video safari as I was able to watch it. Unfortunately, the sound of that awful music repeating away in the background was horribly intrusive and it became impossible to listen to you with that going on. Totally unnecessary distraction that really spoiled it. Had to give a dislike.

    Oh, quick question: I have some old-ass reclaimed hardwood. Would it be okay to use them as the sides of a learners benchtop with structural pine 2x4s sandwiched between? Will they expand shrink v differently and make the top uneven?

    What an incredible bench! After watching 20+ bench builds this is my favorite so far. I love the dark walnut stains and the leather on the vices is next level cool! Thanks for making this video to show us how to make the table, but a table this nice is a long way off for me! Going to the bigbox store to get basic lumber to build my first work bench soon.

    Can the beams run width wise across the table instead to length wise? Might find shorter beams as 'scrap' but not longer ones, also may make the joinery easier? Nice bench….

    0:58 Totally agree, it's a small workbench already and you really don't want a workbench to move around when you're sawing or chiseling. So you definitely need mass!

    The track that you used with your rigid circular saw, where did you get the track from and base plate for the saw? I have the same circular saw and am trying to figure out The best way to turn it into a track saw.
