Adjustable height bench and bobbin winder

My sweetie has been a weaver for 40 plus years. Recently at a estate sale she picked up an 8 harness loom to replace her 4 harness loom. And she picked up a broken bobbin winder. I built a new bench and re-built the bobbin winder. The bench is all cherry except for the stretcher, didn't have a large enough piece of stock, so I used a construction grade 2 x 4. It's pretty clear looking at the grain that it's not cherry but the color came out okay. It was my first tusked mortise and tenon.

The winder (first pic how we got it and second pic my re-build) had a motor and foot switch but was missing pieces. I made it a spring tension unit.

Pretty much Tom. It's actually a shuttle (one for each color) that that is passed back and forth. The bobbin is suspended in the shuttle.
