Thread: I Shrank The bench

    I Shrank The bench

    Hi guys. Most of you recall the work bench ZI built a year or so ago

    Well Vicky wanted to take it home to make biscits on and said it was to nice to do woodworking on.
    Well I needed a project to start setting up and fine tuning my machines. So I decided to give her her won bench for the kitchen.
    She got it a little late for Christmas but sh likes it just the same




    I will put danish oil on it tomorrow and finish the top in a butcher top oil

    Looks great, Reg. Be sure to post some pics when you get it all oiled up. I'll bet it's gonna look sweet.

    Whew! Showed my wife and she did NOT ask for one for herself...

    Great looking bench, Reg. Is it 60" long? I see walnut, but what is the other wood? On the first bench it looks too red to be maple. Is it Beech?

    Reg,
    Awesome benches, both of them are simply elegant I don't know if I should show the LOML this bench or not. On the one hand, it is inspiring, I almost want to go get my shop back in action [B]just/B]to make one similar to that for my shop. On the other hand, If she sees it, she might just want one for our kitchen, we've been discussing a new kitchen island, and that benchtop is gorgeous! Way to go!

    I guess everyone really does need a workbench! Very nice work. Is the wood maple and walnut? I look forward to seeing it with the finish applied.

    Beautiful work Reg. Breaks my heart to think of using it to make biscuits though

    LOL...saved you a little work Art. No it is white oak. Didn't have a sorce of maple at the time Art.
    Jessie I'm with you...although those home made biscuits do taste mighty nice on a cold day with butter and honey or maybe some applebutter.....
    I just thought she needed a bench for cooking.
    Art its only 50" long and 23" wide
