    Thanks all
    I've been thinking of getting a small plaque with a little history: "In memory of Dad with date, wood from etc & inlay it on it somewhere"

    I use it. Dad would kick my arse if I called it a work bench & just looked at it. It now all dinged & scratched. Well used. As it should be.

    Get that plaque made, or make one he would be proud of.
    A piece of family pride!

    That's one gorgeous bench. I won't work on it. Too nice to scratch it up.

    That is total SWEET! USE IT! Your dad would be proud.

    I got tons of old stuff at the house (it was the original family farm). My ancestors were practical, hard working farm folks. If it didn't serve a purpose, they didn't need it. I still use much of the same equipment that they did. It has sentimental value to a degree, but it serves a purpose as well. Much of it would be considered "antique", but I ain't a collector. I'm a user of old stuff. ;-)

    Wow . . . until today for some reason I couldn't see the pics (happens frequently here for some reason . . . maybe due to our server here at work perhaps?) . . . very nice!

    Thanks guys,
    Feels good to get compliments from other craftsmen.

    Here is a link to the building, if you want to check out the build. This site almost phased out, not used much,
    but pictures of the build are still there 3rd post down on this thread has all the links to the various stages of the build (Don, the moderator's post)
