    "One of a Kind" Custom WORK BENCH. Incredibly strong, every component reinforced with 2x4's. Built for my own use but we are moving and I will no longer have space for it. Unit breaks down if necessary for moving, easily screws together. Overall dimensions 51" x 25" x 80" (401/2" work surface height). [Note-multi outlet and mitre saw in picture is not included]

    Contact Eli at levinesdesigns@msn.com or thru CL

    Bench is available until posting is removed.

    :-D Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile :-D

    Honestly Honey, that will cost around $100 $150 $200, and I need a few more tools.

    I saw this last week and tried to talk JimmyC into buying it. I even explained that it was probably made completely of exotic woods and only painted to look like framing lumber as a theft deterrent.

    I think it was $350 last week and that was a little high, at $320 it seems like a bargain.

    Re: You have to be kidding me

    I can't believe you guys. This is a true custom work bench. A one of a kind. A work or art. Not one of those every woodworker type bench. You know the everyone has benches: solid maple top, quick release front and side clamps, bench dogs, tool storage,........)

    Re: You have to be kidding me

    Unique - that fits one definition I heard - when something is so absurd/ugly unattractive/weird.......lol!!!!!!!

    This is not to be confused with unique that means really cool and unusual (in a good way).

    Re: You have to be kidding me

    Hey, I take offense at all this. Just because I am trying to sell my extra bench for a few dollars you shouldn't be making fun of me....


    Geez.....

    Well, it isn't my bench, but I agree, overpriced. Think he has an accidental extra zero?

    In reality, he probably added the cost of his materials, determined what he thought his time was worth, and added a little bit for profit$$. Right concept, poor understanding of the market!

    Re: You have to be kidding me

    Just saw that he lowered it on Craigslist to $300. Can't believe one of you experienced woodworkers hasn't jumped on that deal.
