    Thanks for the photos. I like the detail on the leg bottoms. I made a hall table a few years ago (thread here) that uses the same basic joinery as your bench, albeit scaled up. That detail on the...

    This.

    As others have suggested, a full top refinish may be the only way to render this invisible. I did this once on a dining table. In addition to a dent or two it had normal finish wear from...

    I can't speak to the Amazon version, but I've been pleased with the version from Lee Valley. The magnets in the mounting bracket and in the base of the lamp are both very strong. It's solid...

    I got one from Lee Valley this summer and love it. I use it for spot illumination on my bench and my band saw. A longer gooseneck would be a plus. What was your solution?
