    I have finished a short workbench. It is just under 1 meter long.

    Wow that looks awesome. Perfect for joinery and small projects.

    Great job on the build. You will love working on it.

    Actually this one is for my friend’s son. It’s his birthday this very day. I once mentioned I can make a workbench when my friend told me that as his son was interested in woodworking and he would like to give him a real workbench as a birthday present. A few days later I was choosing wood at the local suppler. Time saw short. At times I was not sure I would complete the work in in time. I was to pass it yesterday. And it was only yesterday that I began to chop the recesses in the aprons. From very early morning (Someone poked me it the ribs…) till night I had to work without a break. At 11 p.m. the second jaw was cut and two hours later when my friend came to take the workbench away I took the final picture of it.
    Thanks God. And thanks to Paul.

    THat’s fantastic, Misha. Your friend’s kid will love it. I hope it really energizes his interest in woodworking.

    I hope it does. I have a tenon saw and a modern Stanley #4 that I don’t use very often, so I gave them to him to start with. At least they are set and sharp.

    That’s a great bench. An inspiration for the young woodworker.

    This vise is quite good. I’ve been using the same kind of vise for nearly two years, and they never let me down. The quick release mechanism is very useful.

    @misha2 Your mini bench has proved the inspiration for my mobile house repair bench.

    The next is a downsized version of Paul’s wall clock. It is nearly finished, just can’t find appropiate clock mechanism.

    That looks very nice also, Misha. I don’t know what country you are in, but in America, I’ve bought clock faces from Klockit.com. I’m sure there are many other clock face companies. Good luck.
