Default The project that made me want a router table

Cabinets under my workbench.
A tribute to my Dad. From wood he & I cut many years ago on his sawmill, from tree to workbench (I know he'd like it)
Finally call it done.
Loads of help from this site.
Thanks everybody.

That is one fine tribute to your dad and you right he would be proud of it and you. It is much too nice to use as a work bench. But I might imagine your dad would want you to plus it's a little of him when you do work at it, Anyway that is fantastic workmanship and beauty.

Whilst I must confess that the design isn't to my liking, I'm envious of your fine craftsmanship Dave, it puts mine to shame.

That is a beautiful piece of work, a tribute to you and your Father whose footsteps you walked in. Hats off to you

I totally agree - a great tribute to your dad - I bet he has a grin that will not quit.

HI Dave

VERY NICE JOB

Now you need to get a brass name plate made for it, with your name and your dad's name on it
