Project Information

Hello fellow WW'rs!

Its been a while since I have posted anything and I just wanted to let you see my latest project that I have completed. I purchased the wood for this bench from Wall Lumber in NC. It went to Hope Mills and was started there, I went to Fort Gordon for school and it followed me there to work on it some more (a nice guy let me use his shop), after school I received orders for Germany. Once the house-hold/tools/wood/partially completed supplies arrived I worked on the bench. Comments are are always welcome. Thanks for looking and have a blessed day.

The last pic is of my Stanley's sitting patiently for the chance for its turn on the new bench,,lol.

Great work, its amazing that hours and hours of blood, sweat and tears can be summed up in a few photographs huh? I know what was involved, great attention to detail and craftsmanship. By the way, Thanks for all you do for our country.

Thanks everyone for the comments! I can't wait to finish up some projects with it; you don't realize how much you need a good bench until you use one.

Adam- Being in the military I use a lot of hand tools, I do have a small table shaper, planer with sled (for jointing operations as well) but a good bench is a necessity for hand tools. I like to think of myself as a 50/50 hand/power-tool woodworker.

Adam- tooo funny! I love to wear flip-flops all the time in the shop; I will make sure I don't wear them when I move the bench.

Nice bench!!!!

what do they call WO in the Army. In the Marine Corps we used to call them Gunner( as in Good Morning Gunner Smith(along with a salute of course)

Keep your chin up and your head down!

NIce Bench Can relate to your wandering… While I am not in the Military… I seem to be frequently sent to the pointy end of the spear to fix or update software that helps things go boom in the night. In Germany? Heidelberg at ARCENT? I am guessing.. But there is alot of other stuff going on there.. Needless alot of been there done that's.. Been to all the MAJCOMs in Europe… Including the armpit ones..

Anyway Welcome back to someplace green. Deployments stink…
