I hope this thread explodes. I love nothing better than looking at workbenches. There are some incredibly fine ones here. Can't wait!

Where's Smitty for a major smackdown?!
Heck, I don't think he'd mind.

Purp's still got the baddest wagon around. It's got the reach that a lot of the little prefabs can only dream of. I had the whole benchcrafted set in my cart when my better half discovered it. Hard to slip $800 worth of vises past the grand auditor on the amex.

Long live the workmate!

Andy, that's just about my dream bench as well (flipped, of course). Since we're dreaming, my bench would have both a shoulder and wagon. I have a shoulder vise fetish and although the wagon and leg can do most anything, I just like to see a big, massive, lumbering shoulder on the move. What's another screw when you're $1000 deep, lol. I considered making my dream bench out of $15/bf wormy chestnut. It's sacrilege, true, but that vise bill would be painless at that point;)

I'm a real sucker for masonry work, and you've got a lot of it.
That's what I thought about the grill. I've got the 36 inch. Still don't have a smoker:(

^I don't get tired of it. What's the diameter of a beer can? Hold on….gulp….looks to be about 2 1/2 inches. I'll take some good pictures of my Lake Eerie. I have another reference to use that closer to 3 inches in diamter:)

I'm with Smitty, it's like chopper handlebars on your bike. Cool? Oh hell yeah. Practical? Maybe not so much. I mean, we could put parallel hydralic pumps with actuators. At some point, you kind of get too far away from tradition, imo.

^I've got the lumber drying.
That's me in the back with my hat on backward, peeing on the log to mark my claim.

I'm going to need some room for my carving too, though, Andy. I'll probably use this one as my finishing bench.

I think the World authority on everything (including benches), Chris Swartz, uses pine in his benches. He's made some really nice ones; gotta give the guy that one.

Boatman, I'm still in on the chain. That's a slick setup and I totally get it now, thanks to Scott. You might owe him a few Magic Hats for installing it on one of the finest benches here;) Have you estimated a retail price yet? If so, ballpark it via a PM if you don't want to commit. I understand that it'll be very ballpark.

There's a 203 about to pop on Ebay in 4 hours or less. 2 bids at $15 or so.
Edit: Smit you know I'm not a Veritas, SawStop, or Grizzly fan, lol; but those Veritas Wonderdogs and holdfasts are just impossible to beat.
