Well Hello everyone !
Some of my friends have been wondering. Where is he? What is he doing ?.
Without a lot of Detail.
I moved AGAIN !
Last November I was given an opportunity (She is a good friend, we worked together 20 years ago)
Her husband died of cancer 10 years ago.
She lives on an acreage with a beautiful heated workshop.(He was a cabinet maker)
I moved here last fall and work on the acreage doing yardwork, etc. We also have a small joint business together in local city.
Moved ALL my tools and lumber 800 km…(520miles)
Friends, family and me. 7 loads !
Building rusric furniture from re-claimed materials.
Today I salvaged timbers from oil company,
3 12”x 12” x 12 ft long
NOW I have a outdoor workbench,
SOLID…....weighs about 600lbs
I will enjoy this.
Also looking forward to meeting some of the LJ.s from Alberta. (This is where I now live…..AGAIN)

Best of luck to you. That is a massive workbench. No need anchor it down. I believe you could set a car on it work on it!!

Cheers, Jim

Holy Crap o’Dear! That has to be the thickest bench I’ve ever seen! Honestly that’s not a bench. It’s a stand for logs with flat tops. Totally awesome!
