    One Impressive Workbench

    I don't know much about this guy, his name "Samurai Woodworker" is a bit strange to me, having lived here in Japan for so long, but boy did he build an impressive workbench.



    Really that is some piece of work.

    Cheers!

    That is a work of art. Would hate to use it, afraid I'd get a scratch on it. Love his little helpers. Wish I could work at his pace.

    Great bench. Certainly not his first rodeo. Interesting mix of tools and brands.

    I've watched a few of his videos. He is quite the character, but does do some impressive woodworking.

    Just searched my picture archive and found pictures of a workbench that a student at Cerritos college made a few years ago. I was taking a turning class at that time.
