Holy crap dude, that's a "simple" build? I feel really inadequate now, I'd hate to see a complex build...

I need cheaper hobby

Great work Roy!
It is great to see you on this board also.
I am looking for plans for a small carving bench that I can keep on the front porch at the senior / handicapped housing I live in. Coffee table by night and carver's bench by day. Any ideas Roy???

Only thing I can say is make it to you , measure to your knees an add 5 inches make it a little wide not so deep, you can always use hold down clamps for the work pieces

Thank you for the help Roy. Things have drastically changed in our housing since we last spoke.
