Tony,

I just love all those windows and Iím still amazed by the doors with hinges. The green you used looks better all the time.

Mike

I am in the very beginnings of building a woodworkers bench for the car shop. So far I have some wood, not sure of the species, but not basswood, that's for sure, that has a close grain and hard enough to withstand the saw blade of the table saw, and the color is about right. It is the top of the table, with the doles for the dogs cut. Soon I'll be cutting to length and adding the legs and some shelving. The first picture is similar to what I will be doing, but not exactly.

Tony, in a million years I don't think I would have thought to make the dog holes that way. You're a genius!
Cheers,
Dave

Boy, if only we could live a tenth of that time, look at all the models we could build. But that is still an awful long time,
Thank you.

Very ingenious Tony. I'm impressed.

And since you were talking about dog holes. How does the hound dog in the first pic feel about that?

Carl, Rich and Rick. thank you.

Bernd, never noticed the hound dog until you mentioned it Looks like he's hiding out as he got an inkling of what that all means.

Well, it took a little time an patience, but at least I now have one bench top. I used a .6mm brass screw for the front vice, with .010 styrene rod for the handle, 'threaded' through a toothpick I sized down using one of those dowel making jigs. The end vice handle is usually a little larger, and has heavier hardware, so a small Grandt Line T-union was used. I used .020" styrene rod for the handle. I have some paint touch up to do as the handles freely move within the holder. Now I need to make the supports.

Nelson,

Great project. I am attempting to do a scratch built structure in 1/48th scale and this workbench will be perfect in the wood shop. Thanks for the idea and inspiration

Later, Dave S. Tucson, AZ
