The bench has been refinished as I wasn't happy with it (too glossy). I've also replaced the nice Osage Orange handles from Benchcrafted with some Jarrah ones to match the rest of the bench materials. Final shot is the bench in use, that's the mess from making the knobs.

Yup, like the satin finish. Nice matchup on the knobs... wow!

As an old girlfriend once said... the collars and cuffs match. Did I just say that?

I thought that was Sean Connery in "Diamonds are Forever"...

Great job, Groggy. That's one YOWZA bench!

Thanks for the comments everyone, it has been immensely rewarding at the end. Scratches will be viewed as 'character'

A few shots of clamping variation available on the new bench and the completed Moxon vise awaiting clamping slots, a final plane, sand and some finish.

Very beautiful and practical bench!

But I couldnīt do one single saw cut on it because of scratches.

Thatīs no work bench, itīs FURNITURE!

Merry X-Mas to you guys,

Moqui
