Hey there Asa, just wanted to say thanks for the plans for this workbench.  It was super easy to build and fits perfectly in my limited space.  I built a cabinet for underneath out of 1/2" MDF to help hold some of my smaller power tools.  You can see in the last picture that my space isn't huge, but since I'm still fairly new into the whole woodworking thing, its more than ample.

I was able to build it from start to finish in a day, even with a few mistakes to take up some of my time.  All-in-all it was a great project and has already seen a few more projects built on it.  I look forward to having this bench for a while (until I have the time, space and money to build something bigger and better...)

Again, Thanks!

It looks great. I like how you lengthened the vise jaw. That will help you hold long boards on edge. Also, it's good to see that you took advantage of the storage space under the benchtop. Great work!
Keep woodworking. If you built this workbench in a day, you've got real talent.
