What an awesome bench, thanks for sharing!
Andrew, I see that the bench sits on eight (?) furniture levelers (like this?). Don't they make the bench a bit less stable?
Andrew, have to agree with everyone- very nice bench and built lightning quick!
Thanks for posting this - I really like your bench and thanks for posting the photos. It loooks like a pretty straighforward uncomplicated build and just what I am looking for Thanks again.
Nothing is ever as straightforward as it seems.

Just curious - Did you base you work off a plan or did you just draw up what you wanted ?
The bench does look great.

The design, well, I have used the "two slab with a center trough" in the past and it seemed like a good idea for me. The base was sized to accomodate the Lee Valley vises. That's about it... I ended up buying a book on bench design, but I had the bench finished before the book even made it to my house ;)
So far, its working well for me. I use it daily for some thing or another. The vises are very nice as well.
Nice bench. That should last you the duration.
Having space to work on large projects like the bench is a great advantage most of us don't have, let alone large assembly table etc.
I agree that a 'shop tour' is in order when time permits.
Ok guys, everyone should have a look at Andrew's shop! Well worth it. I'm still wiping the drool off.
Andrew, I'll be sure to look you up if I ever get to Timmins again.
