    Ok, finally something for you guys - not much, but something.

    After many many difficulties and delays, here's my homemade, sloppy, ugly, twisted, warped and almost ready workbench.

    I had to change plans couple of times in the middle of building this ugly POS, (for example: it's now upside down :D) but I guess it'll do.
    At least it's sturdier and taller than my beaten Workmate and I probably won't feel sorry when I abuse it. :thumb:

    Here's the other pictures of the project: https://plus.google.com/photos/1034...s/5778275907914146593?authkey=CJXalsC1m8qo8QE
    Nothing much to see there, though.

    Next time when I make a workbench it will be as simple as it gets.
    I just wish I had seen this video before starting to build this one: Woodworking for Mere Mortals: Build a cheap, simple, sturdy workbench

    Well, after I built guitar for my friend this one feels... crappy.
    Currently it's missing one string and having minor grounding issues after I messed around with pickups - so it's hanging in the workshop, waiting for its turn.
    And of course now I feel that lacquered neck is really sticky and slow - I'm having a TruOil neck envy :D

    Otherwise it's ok. :D
    (But I'm still waiting for that distant day when I get to start my build #6, my next personal guitar... but first I need to complete #3, #4 and #5... :D )
