    Bench add-on

    Does it ever end? ......I hope not

    Found some old unused drawer slides while cleaning up after the bench build and danger filled the shop... yep I got to thinking... and after checking the wood stove I realized the burning smell was coming from my brain area...

    Anyways, one thing lead to another and she's heavier than she was yesterday.

    Plan is to make some compartments for chisels and what-nots in the drawers and project parts storage on the shelf. Figured I needed to leave enough space between the shelf and the top in-case I ever need to force/pop out a hold down or dog peg someday.....At least the new year is off to a good start

    Oh, you're talking about the bench. For a minute there, I was wondering how you knew what my aunt got for Christmas.
