Nice looking bench! Now that I have to show to my significant other… See darling, others do it too! Now can I have one in the living room?
Hopefully you don’t disturb the neighbors too much pounding mortices.
Your scoop is also great!!

Actually I hope to move my bench to a more appropriate place. As for my neighbours, I did all my mortising while they were not in.

As the legs are thinner than they ought to be I have decided to add some rigidity to my bench by placing a diagonal bar between the leg frames. I can’t declare the bench was shabby, but I am sure it is stronger now.

Sorry, I should have said wobbly instead of shabby.

nice bench Misha.
It Stands in the livingroom you say?

Yes, it does. But I am looking for a place to move it to. Unfortunately I can’t do noisy and dusty (mortising and sanding) work so far.

With a broom and a wet-or-dry vac you should be fine, unless the noise bothers the neighbors.

I am also working in my house,i have a little workshop on our attic.
Must also keep the noise to a minimum because of the neighbours.
Luckily the most of the handtool work doesn’t produce much loud noise .
It is not the ideal place for a workshop but it works for me .

I notice some tools in the cupboard behind, but it doesn’t look as if you can open the doors without moving the bench. Have you considered the Axminster wheels Paul talked about in a recent blog to make it more mobile?19 February 2015 at 8:40 am #124829
In fact, I had to move my bench as far from the camera as I could only to take the picture of it. But wheels would certainly add maneuverability, and would save the floor.
