This is my European design workbench, I used solid red oak laminated together for the top and frame and 3/4 ply for the carcass and all the inlays are paduke. This was like my 5th project @ American woodworking academy

Great work Jared… worthy of more recognition. You should post a YouTube video with pics of the construction and a video of the final result.

Don’t know what the school cost but you appear to have gotten your money’s worth. If you put all that beauty into a work bench, I can’t wait to see what’s in the future… Great job

Thanks for posting. I live in the St. Louis area and have thought about looking into AWA, I’d appreciate hearing anything you have to say about the school and your experience.
