Gallery Goodness, 3rd January 2018
Christmas is a time for peace, fun, food and, if our submissions page is anything to go by, a great deal of woodworking. I am glad that you have been using your time wisely and very thankful to everyone who has shared their photos. I hope 2018 will give everyone ample time to continue to learn and make.

Workbench by David Berry
Pine, roughly 72″ x 26″ x 37″ (I’m 5’6″). Lower is milk paint, with Boiled Linseed Oil overall. Followed the “Working Wood” workbench, which is very similar to the new videos. Most of the tools are restored from old — Stanley planes and Disston Saws (the one closest to the vice was found in an antique store for $3, freshly sharpened — I haven’t restored it but used it throughout the bench build.
