    Real nice. I mean real, real nice. I've never seen a chain drive dual vise like that on the end of the table.

    That's beautiful work, Dave. I've done a lot of woodworking, but I've never developed my skills to that level. Very nice, indeed. Rick

    WOW, that cant be a jorgensen, who's the maker of that end vise? MY gosh finally a router table that wont allow for sawdust to encapsulate every bit and wrench within 10 feet of it LOL pure genius (as Doug starts smashing his with a sledge to begin rebuild)

    Yeah, I built a workbench like that quite a few years ago, but different.
    As in... not NEARLY as nice. Not even close.
    Someone's got serious talent. Kudos, Kudos, Kudos.
    Some here will understand the amount of work and attention to detail it took to do that.
    Glue-ups are fun, aren't they?!;)

    I have done enough wood working to know how incredibly talented you are. That's not amateur work there, that's art!

    Thanks for the great comments.
    Coming from you guys, true compliments.
    I learned allot in the builds.

    Now you see why you guys burning those big oak, maple & cherry trees, makes me cringe. LOL :)

    Workbench?? I'd be afraid to work on that beauty Dave. It belongs in an art show or museum. You are one fastidious and fine craftsman.

    Wow, Beautiful work. It would be hard for me to actually use that work bench at this point. Kind of like a manicured bent grass fairway, you hate to take a divot.......Auuhh, Boggy Dave should be able to relate to that:)

    I leave divots :) (i replace or seed them, but it's a golf course)

    Dad would come down & "Kick my butt" if I made a workbench from wood we cut & didn't use it as a workbench. :)
    Now it's got stains, nicks, scratches & dings, he'd be pround ::P

    Your Dad is right. I once knew a guy who collected guns, never shot them, wanted to keep them in mint condition. I never understood that at all.
