Finally completed Ed's "Not So Big Workbench" which is my first major woodworking project.  I started this back in May, 2013 and have been working on it on and off ever since.  Got sidetracked on several other cool projects from FWW.

Ed's videos are awesome and I wore out the DVD during the build.  The level of detail was extremely helpful given my inexperience and, despite a few mistakes along the way, I'm pleased with the outcome.  The FWW projects DVD's and expanded plans are a ridiculously good value and frankly, nothing else I've seen on the market even comes close.  Ed even has a follow up video posted on making the most of the bench storage space which was helpful also.  

Only problem now is that I just sit in the garage and stare at it.  I'm hoping the first ding doesn't drive me to tears.

Im looking to build this as well. How much did this run you on lumber alone?
