Beautiful job on the houndstooth dovetails!! I built mine years ago and love having it in my shop. I can't believe I went so long without a proper bench and i'm betting you will have a similar experience

My current bench is the first i built. It was loosely based on a Roubo but i really didn't know what i was doing when i built it. (Today, i still didn't know what I'm doing but now I get there faster!) :)

 

Anyways, it's not great to say the least. I've wanted this exact bench for over 10 years and I'm really excited that it's coming along.

@pkinneb With that in mind, after a few years of use, is there anything you would've done differently, if you were to do it over again? Any mods you think i should think about as I'm moving through the build?

 

Thanks!
