A few of you have noticed that I've been asking questions about benches. Well here's a little background, it all started with this and a box to keep my stuff in.





And then to this



I bought a little building and started work on a new bench



I went to a saw mill and got some cull oak, it still had the blade marks on it, so I sanded it down start with 60grit and then moving to 80, 150 and finally 220 grit and stained it.



I liked the way it turned out



And now, moving my stuff in just to see what and how much I had, still isn't organized or done yet.

If you have or can get more of that wood cover all 3 walls with it. If not use drywall, paint it and put up some shelves.

Add more light too.

That wood looks nice !! I bet that bench is sturdy as a rock.
