Boy this Business news adding 50 links in each forum is getting really annoying.

Now for the bench the OP just got. You can build a cheap Moxon to help with dovetails and such. If the top is slick and sealed you may want to take a plane to it so it has some grip. Holdfast holes are a must IMO, they really speed things up and can double as dog holes for an end or wagon vise. Depending on what’s going on underneath with metal framing you should be able to get a clamping front vise to workout. By the time you get this all dialed in you will have a good idea what bench features you want for your style of work. I see a workbench build in your future.
