    You are a blessed man among mere mortals. That is an incredible bench. Congratulations on your success. 500 years from now someone will still be looking at the date with a big grin on their face.

    I love the look of this bench. Particularly the finish on the ash. Curious what was used here? Whatever it was doesn't seem to have yellowed or darkened the ash at all. By the way - thanks for the reference Michael.

    2 coats Minwax Tung Oil Finish and 1 coat butchers wax. I have it all documented step by step over on TalkFestool forum

    Jim,

    Can you post an update on how the UHMW are holding up, and if you still like them? I have a concrete slab shop and it tends to wick moisture, I need to do something to prevent that from hurting the legs of my bench. I would also like the ability to move it around every so often if I want to.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Sorry, late to the game. I have no regrets whatsoever with the UHMW feet. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
