Workbench by mark leatherland
This is my workbench, there are many like it but this one is mine. Paul was right… I could do it and I’m very pleased with it and proud to have achieved this as a beginner with newly aquired hand tools. Bench height is 41″ which feels perfect for me. I’m 6’3. Vice is a 1930’s record 52 1/2 from ebay. Paid £82 – Still works perfectly. The benchtop and legs and wellboard are redwood pine, the aprons and rails white pine. Redwood was much nicer to plane

Rocking Chairs by Simo Eerola
I had a change to buy an old big birch log 4 1/2 years ago that was going to be burned. I got plenty of great wood and that log was curly birch! For rocking chairs I did steam bending year ago and now during this situation I had plenty of time to finish the project. Leather seats and wood is finished with clear shellac. My first chairs and it was lots of work but I’m very happy with the result.

Great projects everyone! I really like the hexagon shelves. Volodymyr, how did you make the 30 degree angles? Did you make a dedicated shooting board?
