Just finished my workbench. I’ve always wanted a good bench. Maple with wenge trim. Lee Valley vises. Made the top some time ago and completed the base and cabinet over the past winter. Pretty happy with it overall especially with the mobility to move it where I want. Time to get to work on the next project.

That’s a great idea with those casters. I’ve never seen that before. It’s something I’m going to remember.
